LUN­DAVRA Pri­mary School pupils got their chem­istry right when they got mixed up at a Gen­er­a­tion Science work­shop.

The Get Fizzy work­shop, de­liv­ered by the Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Science Fes­ti­val and sup­ported by the Lochaber Smelter, is for pupils new to chem­istry who learn about solids, liq­uids, gases and fizzes and watch how mix­tures re­act.

Nick Thom­son, head teacher at Lun­davra Pri­mary School, said he was de­lighted to wel­come the science tour to the school. He said: ‘For some of our pupils, Get Fizzy is their first in­tro­duc­tion to chem­istry. It is hand­son and makes science fun and en­joy­able.’

Danielle MacTav­ish from Lochaber Smelter said: ‘This is the fourth year we have sup­ported the work­shops. Every year we get great feed­back from pupils, teach­ers and par­ents.

‘ We are de­lighted to be able to pro­vide such a valu­able op­por­tu­nity to chil­dren in our com­mu­nity. The team at Gen­er­a­tion Science do such a bril­liant job of in­tro­duc­ing chil­dren to science, by mak­ing it both fun and ed­u­ca­tional.’
