On the afternoon of Tuesday 27th January, some children selected from Year 5, 6 and 7 went to Bedford School for an explosive science lecture. The Head of Chemistry at Bedford School, Mr Knight, set alight to children, turned Coca Cola bottles into rockets, inhaled gas from balloons, froze roses and made plenty of loud bangs using all sorts of chemicals. He also squirted children and teachers alike with his water gun. At the end he gave all the children some ice cream that had been made with liquid nitrogen. It didn’t taste much different to normal ice cream – so we were all happy!
