Y 10-13 Science Trip to New York

Y 10-13 Science Trip to New York

For the second year running, Haileybury Astana and Dr Silvanus were proud to organise and run a science-themed trip to America. Available to all students from years 10-13, the excursion was designed to broaden the scientific minds and horizons for all in a stimulating environment. New York City provided an ideal backdrop for such a unique experience, and at its heart, Times Square delivered a metaphorical amuse bouche, engaging the senses with a variety of sights, sounds and aromas.

Accompanied by Ms Khan and Bob Jones from Visions in Education, the team had the fortune to visit Columbia and Princeton Universities, the National Geographic ‘Ocean Odyssey’ Encounter and the Museum of Natural History. Furthermore, students experienced a day in the life of fragrance and formulation chemists at the Colgate-Palmolive facility in New Jersey. Alongside this engaging programme, we visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, cycled Central Park, crossed the Brooklyn Bridge, scaled the Empire State and One World buildings and absorbed the atmosphere of the 9/11 Memorial. Finally, the trip was rounded off with a few hours of retail therapy at Fifth Avenue, a mandatory requirement (we were told by the students) for any visit to New York.

Overall, the trip was a huge success and everyone had an amazing time. Although exhausting, the value gained from the experience was clearly evident and, with any luck, we have inspired a future generation of Haileybury scientists…
