Schools come to Lancaster University for National Science and Engineering Week
Science and Technology researchers alongside 50 student volunteers engaged with pupils from five local schools in a series of events for National Science and Engineering Week 2012.
Central Lancaster High School, Park High School, Torrisholme Primary School, Ellel St John's Primary School and Thurnham Glasson Dock Primary School were all involved in science experiments and demonstrations on and off campus.
Tuesday saw children at Ellel St John's Primary launching rockets hundreds of metres in the air and measuring the friction of jelly while Wednesday witnessed pupils from Park High School freezing balloons in liquid nitrogen and defying gravity with balls that roll uphill not down!
Deborah Padfield, teacher at Ellel St John's commented: "The children really loved it and it has really fired their interest in Science!"
The events were delivered by student volunteers from LUSU involve at Lancaster University, in partnership with lecturers Nick Chappell of the Lancaster Environment Centre, Paul Coulton from the School of Computing and Communications and Phil Furneaux in Physics.
LUSU involve has so far this year involved 620 students in volunteering with 8900 pupils from 59 schools.
