Testimonials

“The girls did a fabulous job of making science come to life for the pupils. The pupils loved the ‘hands-on’ approach and the fact that they were fully involved in the experi­ment.”

Edenbrooke Primary School, Belfast

“I liked changing the indicator’s colour. I liked that they let us smell it and take part. It was great fun.”
