Colour changing chemicals, a liquid nitrogen shower and spectacular explosions dazzled pupils during a special science demonstration at Cheltenham Ladies’ College.
Hundreds of children from schools across the county were invited to the day of lectures, which took place during the annual Chemistry Conference held at the prestigious independent school.
Matt Gill, head of chemistry at Cheltenham Ladies’ College, said: ‘It’s such a wonderful occasion every year where we see young children getting so excited by chemistry. The children’s enthusiasm is clear to see and they certainly leave with smiles on their faces and some new ideas about the nature of science.’
