Norfolk school children enjoy some science fun
From training to be space cadets to learning about numbers, schoolchildren have been having an out-of-this-world time taking part in Science and Engineering Week events.
At Inspire Discovery Centre, in Norwich, pupils enjoyed space cadet workshops which have seen them launching paper rockets and making alien slime as they learnt about evolution and what life could be like on other planets.
Alexandra Minns, from Inspire, said: 'The children loved the space cadet workshops. Space fascinates children because it is a place where there is still so much to find out and explore.'
Among the schools that have taken part in the space workshops are Taverham Junior, Lyng Primary, Great Witchingham Primary and Blofield Primary.
At John Innes Centre, in Norwich, the Teacher Scientist Network (TSN) hosted an event on Thursday and yesterday to show children aged four to seven how fun maths can be and how important numbers are to science.
