Being Blind at the Science Museum, London

Earlier this year, The Murray’s visited the Science Museum in London and met up with Daniel Kish from World Access for the Blind.  Here are some photos from the day!


*Photo Description* Lucas and Daniel (both blind) feel a “Torture chair”. The chair was used in a demonstration and is made from metal, with a seat of nails, skeletal arms and a skull with green light up eyes on top.



*Photo Description* Lucas sits in the “Torture Chair”.  He is holding his cane in his right hand and is grinning while he speaks to the photographer.


*Photo Description* Lucas explores a cannon that was used in a physics demonstration.  Using an explosive force, a water bottle was shot from 50cm tubes made from drainpipe angled at about 60 degrees from horizontal.  Daniel observes in the background.



*Photo Description* Lucas and Daniel, alongside Sarah and Isla (both sighted) watch and listen to an information pod.  The information pod is a large rounded irregular shape which has a screen in the side with interactive buttons.


*Photo Description* Lucas with his long cane reach up as high as he can to reach the top of the wheel of Stephenson’s Rocket (one of the first steam trains).  Daniel and Isla are to the right of the photo, also exploring the shapes and textures.
