Lunchtime at the College was taken over on Thursday 20 March with an array of practical, hands-on scientific demonstrations for students to take part in. 

These included exploding bubbles, a ‘whoosh bottle’ and the famous Van de Graaff generator – which produces electrostatic charges with hair-raising effects.

The events took place as part of the first national Demo Day on 20 March, organised by the British Science Association as part of National Science and Engineering Week 2014.

James Parker, Curriculum Area Leader for Science at Seevic College, said: ‘The College decided to take part in Demo Day as part of National Science and Engineering week to enthuse students across  the whole College about Science. It was fantastic to see so many students engaging with our demonstrations and taking an active interest in Science.”
