One of our library volunteers, Hannah from Hackney, has been flexing her journalistic muscles of late. From interviewing famous authors - the above photo shows her meeting author Malorie Blackman at our One Year On debate - to writing reviews, Hannah has been gaining some excellent journalism experience.
Our intrepid young reporter took a ride on Professor Quantum's Magnificent Time Tour and wrote the following review.
Professor Quantum's Magnificent Time Tour
The Time Tour was great fun, and easy to find too (just off Trafalgar Square)! It was a unique combination of sci-fi and history. The tour was led by 'Professor Quantum', who made the atmosphere jolly and pleasant with her bubbly personality.
As we drove by the famous landmarks the professor would provide us with quirky facts that were interesting, but at times gruesome! Her sense of humor was infectious and I liked how she walked up and down the bus to make sure that everyone felt included and noticed.
The only thing that I found a bit inconvenient was that the seats were facing different directions. This meant that I had to crane my neck at times to see certain landmarks. But one thing I did like was the use of plasma screens for entertainment and communication - so we could see the professor downstairs.
I would recommend this tour for children aged 13 and under, but also for parents with young children around this age. It's interactive, fun and would make a great day out for the family!
