On Friday, 11th March 2016, Paultons Park hosted “Science in the Park”. This special event as part of British Science Week celebrated all things science; with over 420 students and teachers attending a series of free workshops as part of their school visit to the Park.

We always enjoy hearing from schools about how a trip to Paultons Park is used as part of their topic. Many schools like to share their learning with us. Here is a selection of work from different schools:
