Students’ trip to London

On Sunday 4 June a group of maths and physics students went on a trip to London. They visited the Science Museum, in particular, the maths exhibitions there. The trip was supported by the UoL Student Engagement and Educational Development grant “Supporting the Maths Society”.

For example, the mathematics section was very interesting, upon entering were huge curved sculptures, which were representations of differential equations. Also, there was the enigma machine on display as well as the machine Alan Turing created to crack the enigma code set by the Germans during the Second World War, I personally found this fascinating as I have seen the film which tells this story of the enigma code called “The Imitation Game”. The museum also had some interactive sections which were fun. There was a (digital) display of the Earth, from which a voice explained certain properties of Earth as well as showing it in great detail, this grabbed everyone’s attention due to the detail, it seemed as this would be what Earth looks like from space. There was also a piece of the moon displayed in a vacuum box… Overall it was an enjoyable day visiting the science museum and exploring London, especially as there was flexibility on when returning because travel used was train.
