Nearly 250 children from nine primary schools in west Suffolk took part in a variety of activities as part of science week celebrations at a Bury St Edmunds secondary school.
The children, from primaries within the Bury Schools Partnership, visited King Edward VI School, in Bury St Edmunds, yesterday for a day of interactive activities based on the national science curriculum.
The activities included a 360-degree planetarium show from Immersive Experiences, a guess the flavour activity from local company Treatt, optical illusions from Kinetic Science and a mini beast show from Swallow Aquatics of East Harling.
Debbie Ball, of Kinetic Science, said: “I was delighted by the behaviour of all the young people today.
“It was hugely impressive, and the day was very fun.”
