Highlights of a science school trip to Belgium include a visit to the Euro Space Centre in Transinne, where students can experience life as an astronaut for the day and even explore a lifesize model of the space shuttle.
In Brussels, a visit to the Atomium is a must, and Technopolis in nearby Mechelen also comes highly recommended. You’ll be sure to find the right mix of visits to combine both education and fun to leave your science students feeling inspired! And you could also consider joining forces with the business studies, food technology or science department in your school to make this trip cross-curricular.
