School Science Trips to
Iceland

School Science Trips to
Iceland

Embark on a scientific adventure like no other, covering aspects of chemistry, biology and physics, and investigate scientific ideas whilst experiencing the awesome power of nature and its landscape first-hand.

Where natural forces fuse with the technology of science, Iceland is all about the drama. There’s no better place to experience the uses of geothermal energy, the impacts of glaciation and the spectacular landscape that brings it all together.

Discover the inner workings of the Hellisheidi Power Plant, explore the renewable and sustainable energy generation methods at Ljosafoss HEP Station and embrace Iceland’s extraordinary pioneering spirit.

Complex scientific concepts will become easier to understand as you connect with the environment around you, whilst natural phenomena like Geysir and Seljalandsfoss will simply leave you transfixed. Teamed with opportunities to visit the Sudurnes Science Centre and Power Plant Earth, the words ‘science trip’ just got a whole lot more exciting.
