Before I came to the 'Science All Around Us' trip, I didn't really like science - now I think it's amazing and can't wait to do chemistry at secondary school.

The interactive nature of the morning was excellent and really held everyone’s attention, the enthusiasm of all the people demonstrating was also really infectious and stimulated interest in the subject.
