The Hyndburn Academy helped local primary school pupils explore the wonderful world of science when they paid a visit as part of British Science Week.
Running from 8th-17th March and organised by the British Science Association, the annual event celebrates science, technology, engineering and maths.
The Hyndburn Academy welcomed pupils from Rishton Methodist, Mount Pleasant, Great Harwood St Johns and Great Harwood Primary schools who took part in a range of exciting science themed workshops. Activities included designing, building and racing their own hovercrafts and using a leaf blower as propulsion.
The Hyndburn Academy Principal Nicola Palmer said:
“Science is an incredibly important part of the curriculum and opens the door to a wealth of career opportunities. British Science Week is the perfect vehicle to promote this exciting area to our own students and was a fantastic opportunity to work with children from our local primary schools.”
