Knowepark Primary School’s ‘super scientists’ will be in action for one day only at the town’s pop-up shop at 1 Tower Street on Wednesday.

The P5/6 pupils have been experimenting and investigating in science classes, and will showcase their newly-acquired skills and knowledge in the pop-up shop as part of their enterprise topic.

Their class teacher, Arlene Bannerman, said: “Enjoy the experience of a lifetime with our young scientists!

“See the wonder of a lava lamp, the power of a water wheel, buy a brilliant bath bomb, and play with some magic putty. Try our challenge – blow up a balloon with a bottle!”

The children will be showing off their science skills in the pop-up shop on Wednesday, February 5, from 10am-noon and 12.30-2.30pm.

Entry is by donation and the pupils are fundraising to go on a trip to the Glasgow Science Centre.
