Cool Science at Sandgate Primary School

The outreach team from the School of Physical Sciences (SPS) at the University of Kent descended upon Sandgate Primary School to give an interactive Cool Chemistry session.

The children (including guests from Folkestone School for Girls and Stella Maris Primary School) helped to carry out experiments and test what happens to different materials after they are frozen in liquid nitrogen.
