Some memories from 'Mad Scientists' Day' which we hosted in June 2015 and 2016 to celebrate receiving the Discovery Primary Science Award for excellence in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects. The majority of our students brought in their own creations, we all dressed up and performed experiments galore throughout the day. We even had an exploding volcano thanks to Laura!!
