Suffolk primary school pupils experience live science in Bury St Edmunds
More than 100 primary school children in the county enjoyed a day of live science in Bury St Edmunds as part of a new festival.
The schools event, organised by Bury-based Kinetic Science, was held at St Edmundsbury Cathedral today and pupils had the chance to make model lungs as well as dust a crime scene for fingerprints.
The day was part of the first Suffolk Science Festival which continues tomorrow and Sunday, with exhibitors at the cathedral, the Athenaeum, Moyse’s Hall Museum and the library.
Attractions include a pop-up planetarium, a robotics roadshow, and a mini beast roadshow.
BBC celebrity astronomer Mark Thompson will also be at the cathedral for a family-friendly science show on Sunday, starting at 6.45pm.
