Nursery visit National Museum of Scotland

Nursery visit National Museum of Scotland

Learning about clocks and cogs!

The nursery children all went to the National Museum of Scotland today to take part in a Clocks and Cogs workshop.  The children learnt all about what engineers do and how they help people; design, build and fix things.  We learnt all about levers, cogs and clocks with lots of practical activities experimenting with how these things work.  We also got to see the Ritchie Clock on the first floor of the museum, where you can see all the cogs and levers at work inside the clock mechanism.  It was fascinating!  Some of the children also had the opportunity to see some of the other exhibits in the museum too.  A fantastic day out for all the nursery, well done everyone!
