'The best thing I’ve ever seen!' was just one of the lovely comments that the children from Fynamore Primary School said about Dr Stan Fowler’s Chemistry demonstration lectures, given as part of British Science Week.
Dr Fowler, a Chemistry teacher at St Mary's Calne, demonstrated the properties of cardice, how to seemingly turn water into wine and the joys of playing a recorder made from a carrot. Accompanied by his fearless teaching assistant, Leo the Lion, Dr Fowler entertained and educated the pupils and was lucky enough to judge some of their science fair entries. A good day was had by all.
