Science Festival day 2 – Wednesday 4th December

Following an amazing day yesterday which saw our young scientists presenting their investigations to each other, we opened our doors to inspirational scientists (educators, entertainers, experts) and families for day 2 of our festival of science. Over the course of the day, children:

  • took part in one of four Q&As where they got to put their science questions to a panel of experts from the world of science
  • presented to families
  • enjoyed two workshops with our visiting experts with options including a visit to the inflatable planetarium; science and story telling; virtual and augmented reality; Sphero coding; Mad Science; CEFAS, Anglian Water, Norfolk Wildlife Trust; Do Different with Dr Ken Farquhar, and carrying out amazing science experiments with GCSE science students from CNS High School

It was a truly inspirational festival where our children shone brightly! I’d like to end with a quotation from Alan Denton, STEM educator, who chaired our Q&As: ” I have always been a scientist because I have always asked questions and tried to answer them. That is the most important thing we can do as scientists and ALL of you are doing it. ” Enjoy the gallery.
