Pupils from across the Bury Schools Partnership have enjoyed a series of physics-based activities as part of British Science Week.

They descended on King Edward VI School, in Bury St Edmunds, for the ‘Celebration of Physics’ to work in specialist science labs on challenges including building a rollercoaster and investigating the behaviour of pendulums.

The pupils also made electricity from wind.

Students from West Suffolk College offered their support as part of a joint project to study STEM subjects from an early age.

In addition, pupils enjoyed demonstrations from the flavour and fragrance company Treatt.

All of the primary school pupils involved will meet again at the Suffolk Show where they will compete against each other to design and build the tallest jelly tower.

The primary schools involved were All Saints, Great Whelnetham, Westgate, Hardwick, Ickworth Park and St Edmundsbury.
