Culture Vultures: Islamic Science & Inventions

This one week camp will take children out daily to fun and interesting visits to the Science museums, Oxford Science Museum, iconic science sites and parks in London with workshop co-ordinators. Children will learn about the key elements of Islamic science and inventions, and interpret this in a contemporary context.
