SCHOOL students took a trip through the history of science thanks to a visit from a doctor. 

Children from years five to eight at Papplewick school were visited by Dr Zbigniew Szydlo on February 6. 

Dr Szydlo gave a talk on a timeline of the events leading up to some of the most miraculous discoveries in scientific history.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said: “Dr Szydlo had the boys fully engaged - his experiments were fantastic. The boys particularly enjoyed the flash and bang experiments and the amazing colour-changing chemical reactions.”

Dr Syzdlo, a former chemistry teacher, has a PHD in chemical engineering and industrial safety.
