Pupils at Crimond School have taken part in science workshops which were delivered by Generation Science today.

Primary 1 and pre-school nursery pupils learned about ‘Marvellous Magnets’ during the morning of scientific fun.

The visitors from Generation Science delivered a science show to the young pupils and also organised hands-on work station activities in the school assembly hall.

The educational visit to Crimond School was sponsored by oil firm Apache.

Commenting, Head Teacher Hilda Creighton said: “We’re very pleased to have Generation Science in our school to support our learning and teaching in science.

“The workshops are fun and interactive and we’re very grateful to Apache for making this possible.”

Fiona Allardyce of Apache added: “We’re delighted we’re able to sponsor the science workshops at Crimond School. Science is a key part of the children’s education.”

Generation Science is the largest science education outreach programme in the UK.

Its 2015 tour is now underway with science shows and workshops visiting primary schools across all 32 local authorities in Scotland.

Each year Generation Science tours from February to May, reaching around 60,000 children aged 5 to 12 years.

Teams of skilled science communicators bring science and technology to life across a range of subjects through 17 interactive shows and workshops.

The activities introduce children to science and technology in a fun and engaging way, helping them to understand more about the world around them. The programme also inspires young people about the possibilities of a career in science.
