TWO of our Science Technicians, Caroline Marshall and Helen Edwards, visited Ely St John’s Primary School on May 19th to lead ‘Disgusting Digestion’ workshops with children in Year 5!

Pupils learnt all about what happens to their food ‘from gums to bums’, obviously thanks to Helen’s and Caroline’s expertise, but also with the help of ‘Jim’ their handy model.

Thank you to all the children and staff at Ely St John’s for being so engaged and asking lots of interesting questions!

Our Science Department is always happy to hear from local schools who would like to be involved in our outreach programme. To find out more, please email:
