On the 1st November over 100 children and their parents had the chance to test out some hands on science equipment at a free event at Bury Parish Church. The event was run by Fun Science to celebrate the launch of their new Bury/Rochdale branch which will run science themed birthday parties, workshops and holiday clubs across Bury, Rochdale and surrounding areas.
Activities on offer included slime making, hair raising on a Van de Graaff generator and a plasma ball. Plus, children were able to explore changing heart rates and making a human circuit with their parents. Local mum Catherine Morgan said “We had a fantastic time at the science session!! All 3 children were able to enjoy something from it! Aged 2,6 and 7!”
Fun Science Bury /Rochdale will be owned and managed by local mum of two, Angela Burns who is passionate about getting children interested and excited about science. Angela already has some events planned including an after school club for primary school aged children starting on the 4th November from 4pm-5pm at Greenmount Old School Hall and a range of different workshops for pre-schoolers across Bury.
