The Bristol ChemLabS team visited as part of the AZSTT N3 project and received a very warm welcome. The 180 pupils packed into the hall to 'ooh' and 'ahh' at the chemical reactions Alison Rivett showed them in a special assembly. The 64 Year 5 & 6 pupils then had a go at some different experiments with STEM Ambassadors Sophie Franklin, Katie Bayliss, David Lunn.

The following article about the event appeared on the school website here:

"ChemLabS, a team of chemists from Bristol University came to show us a spectacular display of chemical reactions during our assembly. They also gave really exiting and interesting workshops to Years 5 & 6 in which they made slime, used bunsen burners and did lots of investigative science.White lab coats and safety goggles were a fashion must at all times!"
