Science trip to Budapest

On Tuesday 27th February, 45 Sixth form students took part in the annual international Science visit. This year the venue was Budapest, Hungary.

The first day of the four night trip involved a walking tour where students were given a brief history of the capital city.  It included visits to St Stephens Basilica, the banks of the Danube and the Parliament Buildings. After a stop for lunch, we headed towards Fisherman’s Bastion for spectacular views across the river. After more walking, students headed to the University for a tour of the campus buildings. In the evening we had our meal at the Hard Rock Café followed by Ten Pin Bowling.

After an early start, day two saw us exploring the Geothermal Caves under the Buda Hills. We then headed towards the Palace of Wonders Interactive Science Museum where we spent a few hours  exploring the exhibits and taking part in some ‘escape the room’ challenges. The evening involved a private karaoke cruise along the Danube where students demonstrated their singing skills!

Day three was a much more relaxing day as we headed to the world famous Szechenyi Thermal Spas. Considering we had walked over 35 miles the previous two days, this was a much needed treat. The outdoor temperature was -2, but  the open air pool was 38 degrees! Students relaxed in the hot water and took advantage of the various saunas and steam rooms on offer. In the evening we took in more sights of the city as we headed towards our private function room where students enjoyed a buffet dinner while the DJ played songs well into the night.

In all, we walked over 50 miles during the visit, participated in some great scientific activities and also got to explore this beautiful city. Students arrived back at school very tired but having has  an extremely enjoyable visit.
