New Scientist have developed an inspiring, exciting and incredible event called New Scientist Live taking place in London in September 2018. Adaptable Travel have partnered with New Scientist Live to offer you and your students the chance to go on the ultimate school science trip to this incredible event. Offering students and teachers an engaging and inspirational day out, the show brings together the biggest and most provocative science, engineering and technology.
Split into four immersive zones – Brain & Body, Technology, Earth and the Cosmos – students will see science brought to life with over 200 first-rate demonstrations and more than 100 thought-provoking talks from the most influential names in science, fuelling the imagination of every young scientist.
World-leading Scientist Speakers
Students will be able to listen to talks from world-leading scientists, futurologists and thought leaders, inspiring the next generation. 2017 speakers included astronaut Tim Peake, physicist Helen Czerski, Cosmologist and physicist Sean Carroll and Chef Heston Blumenthal. 2017 speaker topics covered will range from the Higgs boson to sports science, to driverless cars, AI and so much more.
What else will there be to do?
Students will be able to learn from the huge range of demonstrations and experiences, and get hands on with science. In addition, they will be able to speak to scientists from the University of Surrey, University College London, Harvard University, The Science Council and many many more. Previous years' show featured the Bloodhound Project's adrenaline-pumping 1,000mph car, a chance to see the European Space Agency's Exomars Rover in the flesh, VR demonstrations, and 'The Rentokil Pestaurant' where visitors could try a range of edible creepy crawlies. 2018 content will be confirmed in the coming months.

Hotel was too far out at Croydon meaning on the Friday morning we spent ages in traffic on the M25 to get from the hotel at 9am sharp to the National History Museum. This meant we could only visit one theatre and not two.
The timings to get from Wolv to London to do the London Eye were also unrealistic so I had to do a live chat to put the booking back 2 hours as we were still travelling down. This was fine but more realistic timings and a closer hotel would be wanted in the future.
Finally, it wasn't great to have to jump on two different coaches on the Thursday night after the Mama Mia show as this meant ringing the new coach drivers and having to jump on two new coaches we didn't recognise outside of a busy theatre at 10:30pm at night with 85 of us to account for. The air conditioning on the top tier of the double-decker bus also didn't work and this wasn't good due to the hot weather we've been having. No toilet roll was also supplied for the travelling on the coach which was also problematic.

Harry Potter studio tour was amazing and all of the pupils thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Very tiring but well worth it

Accommodation has rooms adjacent to the smoking area and smoke gets in unfortunately. Limited working showers for the female students and noisy at times.
Other than that all good. !
