Brownie Sleepover at Science Museum
Witchford Brownies' Special Sleepover at London's Science Museum
Seven girls from 1st Witchford Brownies and their leaders recently had a fantastic time at a special sleepover just for guiding members at the Science Museum in London, along with 400 other Brownies and their leaders from around the UK.
The Brownies chose to travel to London from Cambridgeshire by train and Underground, which was quite an adventure in itself for those who had never been on the Underground before.
After arriving at the museum and meeting other Brownies, there were lots of opportunities for the girls to create their own science equipment, including UV torches and colourful kaleidoscopes. The Brownies then headed to sleep for the night, camping out amongst the galleries and exhibits in the museum.
The next morning, the girls all donned their 3D glasses to watch a film about endangered species at the IMAX cinema in the museum and then spent time exploring ‘The Launchpad’ – the museum’s hands-on gallery packed with interactive exhibits exploring the wonderful world of physics. Brownie, Jenny, said: “The film in the IMAX was so interesting and I learnt a lot about orang-utans and elephants and the people who help to raise and protect them”, whilst Jodie thought that the Launchpad was the best bit – “it was fascinating!”
