Mad scientists inspire children at Welwyn school
ROBOTS, slime and a group of mad scientists came to a Welwyn Hatfield school over the summer holidays.
Sherrardswood School in Welwyn hosted a week-long summer camp organised by Mad Science, a Chorleywood-based company which aims to help children aged four to 11 fall in love with science.
The company holds workshops, events and after school clubs throughout the year designed to increase students’ understanding of scientific principles through interactive hands on activities.
At the Lockleys school, each day was based around a different theme, with subjects including the Olympics, robots, the five senses and slime.
Steph Goynes, Mad Science’s after school co-ordinator, said: “Our mission statement is ‘sparking imaginative learning’.
