Science

Welcome to London Life. This week, we find out out about London's science museum. It is one of London's most popular attractions. This week is National Science Week in Britain, so it's likely to get lots of visitors.

During the programme, we look at some useful science vocabulary.


As you listen, try to answer the following questions:

1: What kinds of things are children most interested in?
2: What is William's favourite thing at the museum?
