The wonders of chemistry had Caol Primary School pupils entranced last week, thanks to an event delivered by Edinburgh Science.

The Generation Science workshop entitled ‘ Get Fizzy’ was sponsored by Liberty British Aluminium.

It is a chemistry workshop for beginners where pupils learn about solids, liquids, gases and fizzes and how some mixtures can react and go bang!

Caol Primary School head teacher Steven Hamilton said: ‘It was another successful workshop from Generation Science which visit every year.

‘It was excellent as usual. They bring all the kit and equipment needed. It offers a wider experience than we could on our own at the school.

‘The pupils get right into it and you can see from the photographs how much they were enjoying it.’
