BTG Science Museum Excursion

  |   News

This month Bridging the Gap took a group of 12 people to The Science Museum where both elderly and young people enjoyed learning about technology from past to present.

 

The museum provided our group with a variety of interesting topics which included ICT, Engineering, Astronomy, Physics and Art & Design.

 

BTG focuses some of its aims around technology and therefore the group found the ICT section of the museum of particular relevance. Both elderly and young people learned how 3D printing works and had a historical look at the development of computers through to the mid-70s and explored how information and communication technologies have transformed our lives over the last 200 years.

 

Bridging the Gap aims to eliminate social isolation amongst elderly people and provide them with life skills that will enhance their quality of life. The project also provides an opportunity for young people to learn about history, culture and traditions, gain work experience and a reference as well as an accredited training outcome.

 

We are currently looking for elderly people aged 50+ and young people aged 18-25 to take part. For more information please contact Shelu Miah on: 0207 423 9146 or email shelu.miah@therootedforum.org
