Rugby pupils blown away by experiments during science week

Rugby school children were amazed by giant bubbles and disappearing water as part of British Science Week.

Boughton Leigh Infant School held a series of experiments during assemblies last week.

Head of science Suzanne Swan said: “I thought why just a day, why not the whole week?

“So that’s what we’ve done and it’s been very successful. It has raised the profile of science in school and shown our young pupils what an exciting subject it is.”

The school was one of three in the Rugby area to take part in The British Science Association’s Demo Day on Friday (March 16).

Teachers also used nursery rhymes to demonstrate aspects of science and a competition to encourage pupils to do their own experiments at home.
