DRY ice, fireworks and even rocket fuel were used for science experiments at Gorse Covert Primary as pupils learned all about STEM subjects.

Big Bang North West visited the school to help children investigate technology, engineering and maths as well as carry out a few scientific investigations of their own.

Youngsters built bridges, towers and mazes to learn about physics and listened to stories about great engineers.

A group of children also made their own bath bombs as part of the programme of activities.

Teachers and staff said they had an inspiring and memorable day with their classes.
