The TY science classes took a trip to the Science Gallery on the 15th December last.The groups were split into two and taken on a guided tour of the exhibition which was sponsored by Google. Afterwards, they were provided with a workshop on one aspect of the exhibition theme. The pictures shows the students looking at two exhibits in particular. One shows a box used by the American security forces for interrogation purposes and the other one shows a virtual reality headset on what it would be like in confinement in a jail cell. All the students found the exhibition very interesting.The exhibition is free to members of the public and runs until January.
