Visiting Pupils Enjoy Sensational Science Workshop

17 November 2021

Our popular 'Sensational Science' workshops for primary school pupils are continuing, with Lower School teacher Mr Worton leading a weekly workshop called 'It's Not Rocket Science'. 

Schools across Norfolk are invited to attend the workshop where pupils become scientists for the day, donning mini lab coats and goggles, and learning about the physics and history behind rocket launches. 

The attending pupils get the chance to make their own individual rockets in groups using inflated balloons and straws. They then go out to the playing field to launch a bigger rocket using water pressure, whilst learning about the science behind it. 

It is a pleasure to welcome pupils from across Norfolk, including Sprowston Junior School, Blofield Primary School, St William's Primary School, Rackheath Primary School, Mile Cross Primary School and Bignold Primary School.
