Scores enjoy ‘mad science day’

Have your say

CHILDREN enjoyed conducting a series of experiments as part of a ‘mad science day’ at a school in Bury St Edmunds.

Twenty youngsters took part in the fun-filled antics focusing on light, sound and electricity at the workshop at Howard Community Primary, in St Olaves Road.

The primary school was one of five in Bury to host the free activity days last week including Hardwick, Ickworth Park, Guildhall Feoffment and Sebert Wood.

Headteacher Bernadette Higgins said: “The purpose of the workshops was to spark the imagination and curiosity of the children by providing fun, interactive and educational activities that provide a clear understanding of what science is and how it affects the world around them.

“The children all had a great time experiencing science in a fun, colourful and hands on environment led by Mike Barnes and Claire Darn, their very own ‘mad scientists’.

“The children were involved in experiments about light, sound and electricity.”

The week was funded by the Extended Schools Partnership.
