A SCIENCE club has teamed up with an East Lancashire school to teach budding scientists.
Flashbang Science has joined forces with Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Blackburn to work with seven to 10 year olds in a summer school programme.
From July 16 to 23 Flashbang Science will take its interactive Science Laboratory to the Blackburn school.
It has stations for 18 pupils and gives children a chance to take part in practical experiments.
A spokesperson said: “Industry in the North West has been held in such high esteem since the Industrial Revolution, and one way we can progress as a society, more so under today’s conditions, is to embrace our heritage and show the youngsters of today that the North West was once at the forefront of industry and can be again.”
Joanna Lavelle, foundation director at QEGS, said: “Queen Elizabeth’s has always enjoyed a strong reputation for the teaching of science.
“We are delighted to support Flashbang’s summer school to encourage young people to find out for themselves that science can be fun.”
