West Suffolk primary pupils enjoy science extravaganza at King Edward VI School in Bury St Edmunds
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.”
Former King Edward VI students, Anne Warby and Saffron Newton, who are now working for Treatt, said: “It is brilliant that so many young people are thinking about, and getting involved in, science today.”
Jay Abu, senior science technician at the school, said: “It’s been absolutely great. It’s fun - it’s cool - it’s awesome - it’s science.”
