Hundreds of children from across Stowmarket and the surrounding villages came together over the Easter Holidays for a mad & magical mystery into the world of Science.  The event organised by Stowmarket Town Council and sponsored by Anglian Water saw scientists from Mad Science bring Science to life for all those that attended the free event held at Cedars Park Community Centre!

Event organiser Sarah-Jayne Thomas from Stowmarket Town Council said “We were absolutely thrilled to see so many young people enjoying Science, our thanks to Anglian Water for making it possible.” Town Mayor Cllr Dave Muller added “It was absolutely superb.  I spoke to many children and their parents and all the feedback has been very positive indeed.”

Stowmarket Mad Science Festival included amazing interactive stage shows which took you on a magical mystery tour of the wonders of air and pressure plus created a radiant reactive rainbow in the Reactions in Action show.  It gave children aged 4-11 the chance to get very hands on, watch and be amazed by the wonderful world of science.  They made a human light chain with plasma balls, erupting volcanoes, mixed up Mad Science Slime, became champions of the tablecloth pull, got their hands on magic mud & took the hair raising challenge with the Van Der Graaf generator.

Stowmarket Mad Science Festival also offered two 30 minute workshops Radical Robots & Junior Engineers. Radical Robots gave children the chance to get hands on with robots and automatons.  Junior Engineers saw children working in teams to create super structures.
