Come along on Saturday 4th September for a treasure hunt around the Science Museum!
About the museum
The museum was founded in 1857 under Bennet Woodcroft from the collection of the Royal Society of Arts and surplus items from the Great Exhibition of 1851.
The Science Museum now holds a collection of over 300,000 items, including such famous items as Stephenson's Rocket, Puffing Billy (the oldest surviving steam locomotive), the first jet engine, a reconstruction of Francis Crick and James Watson's model of DNA, some of the earliest remaining steam engines, and working example of Charles Babbage's Difference engine.
How it works
We will be meeting up at 1:30pm, near the steps of the main entrance to the museum, then you will be randomly divided into teams of 4 people (or you can choose your own team).
We will then give each team 15-20 written clues which you have to find the answers for. It's up to your team to work together to find the answers. You can answer them in any order and we will provide a map of the museum to help you. It's not a race, so you can take your time getting to know the museum.
The team to get the most correct answers and then return to base (a local pub) will win book vouchers for Foyles bookshops of £10 per person.
If more than one team gets the top score, there will be a tie break question back at the pub.
A £5 gift voucher per person will be given to each member of the team coming in second place and prizes will be given to each member of the team with the best team name.
We will be charging £6 per person to take part, apart from Full Members where it is free! (payable on the day).
To become a Full Member, go to: https://www.meetup.com/london_cultureseekers/dues
We will be marking the scores back at the pub at 4:30pm, so it should all be over by 4:45pm.
