Last week Miss L and I were lucky enough to be invited to the new display of ‘Make it in Britain’ at the Science Museum. We were lucky enough to be shown round by the legendary Trevor Bayliss who invented the wind up radio.
The jist of the exhibition is to show off what is actually still made in the UK from MacLaren sports cars to Chocolate, it’s amazing what is made here and we have no idea about it. Mr Bayliss was lovely, and told the children all about Frank Whittle who invented the jet engine and advised them on how to progress any invention ideas they should have. Apparently Miss L should get herself a patent lawyer!
It was fun meeting Mr Bayliss and I was also lucky enough to meet the lady who writes From Britain with Love and her little boy, who loved the exhibition too. The exhibition is very interactive for the kids, there’s lots of them to play with and have a go on, which really makes the exhibition fun for the kids. If you’re in London, it runs until the 9th Sept 2012 and it’s worth having a look at if you’re in the area.
