Scientific Swedes!

Over the past fortnight, we have been part of a residential experience for Swedish primary children from Linkoping. Over six days, at Cobham Hall in Kent, twelve different classes all designed and investigated balloon-powered buggies, experimented with colour-mixing to make multi-coloured candles, created fair tests to discover which fruits contained the most Vitamin C, and explored the science of photovoltaic cells.
They all had a great time and proved to be very good at ever hands-on activity. All the children were able to improve their English skills while developing their abilities in thinking and working scientifically.
The legacy of Arrhenius, Linnaeus and Nobel is in good hands!
