Primary schools take part in FIRE!

During the last week of the summer term we invite all of the local primary schools to send some students to our "FIRE!" sessions.

Students are taken through the science of fire and fire safety, as well as learning how to light a Bunsen burner.

We usually finish with  bang and this was literally the case as Mr Currington did the Thermite demonstration to show the reactivity of metals, resulting in molten iron being liberated.

Over the week nearly 140 students took part and had great fun. We look forward to working with them all again very soon! We would like to thank all of the staff who delivered a session, and especially Mrs Elsdon and Mrs Bell for organising it all.
