Mad scientist, Cosmic Karen, left students agape as they watched her make flaming paper vanish into thin air and turn candle light into dazzling refracted rainbows.

Year 4 pupil, Matthew Adcock, 9, could not decide which the coolest part of the workshop was.

“I can’t decide between the [burning] tissue paper and the bubbles with the dry ice,” he said.

Pupils learnt about refraction, forces and physical and chemical reactions in a special visit from Mad Science.

“I didn’t realise that when you change the centre of gravity [of an object] it changes the speed,” Matthew added.

Mad Science runs interactive learning experiences for children which provide entertainment as well as education.
