    Sorry this is a bit late, but I would suggest looking at the London Museum of Water and Steam (www.waterandsteam.org.uk) which is a unique collection of machinery from 1820 onwards used for pumping water into the West End of London - perhaps the waterworks from the Monopoly Board. You could look at producing clean water, dealing with dirty water, machines and how they work, micro organisms and health etc. Science links to History, PSHE and DT. Unfortunately there is a cost per child for the visit as the museum does not receive free status, but it is an inportant part of our heritage preseving some truely fabulous machines.

    I know I am also very late but we offer a show called "The History of Science" which is a sketch show written to inspire te children to learn more about Science. We have a KS1 and a KS2 version of the show, more details are on our website (www.hobgoblintheatrecompany.co.uk) and we are actually based in Surrey.

    Probably not helpful first time round as your cancelled trip was in June but maybe one for this coming year?

    Regards

    Dan

    If you've got a particular STEM theme, look at what STEM ambassadors can offer.
