Professor Bubbleworks visited Banstead Prep with their amazing Instilling Inspiration workshops for children from Reception to Year 6.

Based on the 2021 British Science Week theme of “Innovation” the children learnt all about discoveries linked to steam, combustion and electricity that led to major developments in transport such as the steam engine and electric cars.

The children actively engaged in the workshops and had lots of fun. Some even volunteered to experience the power of static electricity with a Van de Graff generator.

Mrs Clark, Science Lead, said

“The day was a fantastic opportunity for the children at Banstead Prep to understand the relevance of science and how scientists are innovators whose discoveries affect many areas of our everyday lives.”
