Youngsters learn science can be fun.
They got out of the classroom to enjoy two days of practical science at Warwick University.
As well as helping school pupils, the day also doubled up as an opportunity for students on the faculty's teacher training course to work with children.
Teaching fellow Steve Robinson, who specialises in science, said: "The kids of the future are going to have to be more science literate, and this is all part of it."
The Shell Education Service helped set up the day.
Trainee teachers Victoria Walker, 21, and Suzanne Marsters, 22, took part in the day. Victoria said: "It helps change children's views on science and helps them understand science can be fun."
