MARPOOL Primary School pupils experienced a hands-on exploration of how things work at a 'Science Celebration' morning - marking the end of their science week.
Suzy Edlin, Science Co-ordinator at Marpool said; "The idea was to raise the profile of science and get the children excited about it by doing some hands-on investigations."
Each year group designed a stall during the week based on the sort of activities found in a science museum.
On Friday November 28 the children enthusiastically tackled these tasks including how to build a waterproof shelter out of various materials, experiencing different sights and smells, creating circuit boards and understanding space travel.
Suzy was pleased with the event adding; "This is the first year we had the celebration in the hall and it's nice to see how the different ages can access each others work.
"The older children can see what the younger ones are up to and visa versa, which I think has worked particularly well.
