Fran Scott, who has presented popular BBC children shows Factomania, Newsround, and Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom, loves designing high-impact demonstrations to prove scientific points.

Pupils at Roding Primary School, Roding Lane North, Woodford Green learnt about how strong friction is and also watched a lightbulb be repeatedly bashed about and shot from a cannon without exploding.

Year 6 pupils, Faith Cunningham, 10, said: “We learnt a lot of interesting stuff.”

Sharika Dewan, 11, added: “We love science”.
