From blowing bubbles to setting off rockets, an Ilford primary school has been busy running experiments as part of British Science Week.

Year 6 pupils at Uphall Primary School, Uphall Road, have been treated to a series of workshops run by after school science club Professor Bubbleworks this week.

“Pupils had an amazing opportunity to learn science in a hands-on manner,” said science co-ordinator Hajra Sath.

“They used observation and analytical skills to develop their scientific and enquiring minds so that they could learn more about the world we live in.”

As well as rockets and bubbles, the workshops also covered volcanoes, slime, forces and fluorescent colours.

Run by the British Science Assocation, British Science Week is a national initiative which celebrates science, technology, engineering and maths by holding entertaining events in schools and community groups across the country.
