BUDDING scientists at a Bromsgrove school took part in an exciting day of scientific experiments.

Youngsters from Bromsgrove Pre-Preparatory School, in Hanbury Road, came dressed to school as mad scientists, with the day beginning with fullly interactive workshops, demonstrating the magic of science.

The pupils were then captivated as they watched controlled explosions, disappearing flames, floating objects, giant bubbles and a sea of dry ice.

The day ended on a high note as rockets were launched from the school's garden, and living things were discovered in the pond and forest school.

Sara Bussey, from the school, said the day was a great success and it was hoped it had inspired a new generation of future scientists.
