The lorry, which is a mobile resource centre operated by the Institute of Physics, came to Charleston for three days. This gave all of first year and second year pupils the opportunity to attend a session. It was a chance to experience hands-on science experiments using energy, light and sound, which have been developed to encourage exploration. It is fantastic outreach resource which relies on volunteers who really help the children connect science to everyday life and a chance to interact with real scientists working in different fields. Perhaps one of our pupils will become an inventor in the future as a result.
