Youngsters went along to the museum last Saturday for a Science Fun Day as part of British Science Week.

There were stalls and different activities about science for all the family to enjoy.

From experiments with the ‘science boffins’, food chemistry with the Royal Society of Chemists, hands on electronic technology with Kakou, experiments with Derby University and walking tours to the canal, there was plenty going on.
