MINI scientists from Glendinning Primary School grabbed their safety goggles last week to make their own fizzing potions.

Primary one to three pupils got an introduction into chemistry when Generation Science visited their school on Thursday.

They took part in the Get Fizzy workshop and served up some mysterious mixtures.

Generation Science is a touring programme of fun science shows for younger children.

And is delivered by Edinburgh Science, the international educational charity who aim to deliver the wonder of science to people around the world.

The workshop was sponsored by EDF Renewables who are supporting a variety of Generation Science events across Scotland.

Leanne Watson of EDF Renewables said: “We are proud to support Generation Science.

“These fun and interactive workshops are an engaging way to encourage a new generation of scientists, who will be at the forefront of developing renewable energy and new technologies.”

Get Fizzy is a chemistry workshop for beginners where pupils learn about solids, liquids, gases and fizzes and how they can react.

Acting Head Teacher of Glendinning Primary School, Nichola McCall, told us: “We were delighted to welcome the Generation Science tour to the school.

“Get Fizzy is a hands-on workshop that makes science fun and enjoyable.

"For some of our pupils, it was very exciting as it was their first ever introduction to chemistry”.

Over the last 27 years Generation Science has reached over one million pupils in Scotland.

This year the tour will visit over 600 schools in 32 local authority areas from the Borders to the Shetland Isles.

Get Fizzy is one of 15 educational shows and workshops provided by Generation Science and powered by EDF Energy.

They are designed to make science exciting and easy to understand to help teachers cover the school science curriculum.
