A Suffolk school has introduced youngsters to the science of space exploration with a series on intergalactic experiments.
More than 200 Year Six students attended Stowmarket High School last week in preparation for starting their next academic year. The children built and tested a planetary rover; fired rockets into the atmosphere, and observed celestial bodies.
Jane Dickinson, the school’s director of science, said: “The students were just amazing. They embraced the wonder of space with great curiosity. Enabling Year Six to experience such a wide variety of activities has, I am sure, ignited a passion for space and the science surrounding it.”
The school is holding an open day tomorrow. Call 01449 613541 to find out more.
