Children at St Andrew’s Primary School in Leasingham enjoyed a special assembly by educational group Mad Science.

The pupils got to experience a range of hands-on experiments linked to forces, investigating things such as air pressure.

A spokesman for the school said: “It was a fantastic experience for the children and a really good way to explore scientific principles. Children will have the opportunity to take part in an after-school club to find out more.”

Some of the youngsters are pictured with their air pressure experiments – helped by Professor Mad from Mad Science.
