All the children at TPA had an amazing science week and they were fascinated from the start on Monday to the finish on Friday. The aim of TPA Eureka Science Week was to highlight that science is all around us and anyone is and can be a scientist. All the children were encouraged to take part in different scientific experiments and understand what it means to be a scientist. The children know that a scientist is not just a man in a white lab coat as there are many famous women scientists such as Madame Curie. The success of the science week has been amazing and all the staff have shown lots of enthusiasm to make the children get the most out of science.
