Science Week 2018 saw students and teachers from Bradford's Wilsden Primary School take part in a whole school science day, with an aim of encouraging interest in science, technology and engineering activities.

Sublime Science Company – the Dragon’s Den and Queen’s Award For Enterprise winner, on a mission “to inspire and empower children with knowledge through scientific experimentation” – delivered a slime making session to the pupils, in which they created their own ear-wax and bogey gunge.

More than 380 pupils from Wilsden Primary School - an academy belonging to Focus-Trust, a charitable multi-academy trust based in the North West of England - participated in the day, which saw them arrive at school dressed as famous scientists, including Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and Thomas Edison.

Wilsden’s headteacher, John Davison, said: “We are all responsible for ensuring that the education system inspires interest and enthusiasm for STEM subjects, and as a Trust we place great importance on preparing our students for life in modern Britain.

We are delighted that our children were able to experience scientific experiment and exploration first-hand, which demonstrated some of the fundamental principles of science and put their learned theory into practice – whilst having fun!”
