Pupils were also taught about the human skeleton, in a forensic science lesson at Howard Junior School in King’s Lynn.

The children were given a key ring so they could each keep a copy of their own finger print.

Headteacher Gregory Hill said: “It is fantastic. It will inspire pupils to go to university.”

Mr Hill added he hoped that a visit from a female scientist would encourage more girls to take an interest in the subject.

Science teacher Georgia Newell contacted Lincoln University to arrange for the lecturers to come and visit the budding scientists.

Miss Newell said: “I had the idea to ask for some experts to come and talk to the children.

“As a former Lincoln graduate, I know how good their science department is, so I contacted them. The children can ask them all the questions.”

Dr Nicola Crewe, from Lincoln University, said: “Science underpins everything. A lot of people think it’s boring but science is fun.”
