See­ing sci­ence in ac­tion

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

Year four pupils from Sut­ton in Craven Com­mu­nity Pri­mary School were treated to a morn­ing of sci­ence ex­per­i­ments as part of a lo­cal chem­i­cal man­u­fac­turer’s bid to drum up in­ter­est in STEM (sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing and maths) sub­jects from a young age. Cross Hills-based Airedale Chem­i­cal in­vited 30 pupils to see sci­ence come to life and take part in ex­per­i­ments to ex­plore how blub­ber works, how pen­guins stay dry and find out more about the wa­ter cy­cle.

Stu­dents were also given a tour of the fa­cil­i­ties and had the chance to sit in one of the man­u­fac­turer’s lor­ries. Chris Chad­wick, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Airedale Chem­i­cal, said: “They were all in­cred­i­bly en­gaged and wel­come guests.”
