SCIENCE whiz-kids from Tilston Parochial Primary School had a blast during Discovery Week.
Pupils had fun taking part in action packed activities, including a Mad Science assembly with an appearance from Dr Kaboom.
Students from the University of Chester worked with the pupils on design projects using gears, pulleys and circuits, and they also discovered how to launch foam rockets and create sound vibrations using a didgeridoo.
Headteacher Richard Harley, who is only in his third week at the school having recently been appointed from his previous deputy headteacher post at Bunbury School, said the children were ‘mesmerised’ by all the scientific fun and games.
He added: “They found all the experiments exciting and particularly enjoyed using a catalyst to create elephant toothpaste!
“I am really looking forward to leading the school through a new phase in its development. The children here are very enthusiastic and clearly have a love of learning.
“You could see this in the way they were absorbed by their own scientific discoveries. I am very lucky to be working alongside a very talented staff team and we are all feeling very positive about the future at Tilston.”
