WITH the British Science Festival now under way in Newcastle we asked shoppers what they remembered about their science lessons at school.

Jane Brockless, 61, a nurse, said: "I can remember using the Bunsen burners but I had a horrible science teacher and so I hated the lessons."

Derek Brockless, 59, a fabrication engineer, said: "I remember physics being very hard and not being able to get my head round all the equations but I enjoyed chemistry and the experiments."

John Harrington, 59, a sales manager, said: "I remember the litmus paper and how it changed colour. Biology was my favourite subject. " Karen Harrington, 53, a nurse, said: "I liked using the Bunsen burners and doing experiments in chemistry when the test tubes would all froth up."
