Science and Discovery Week featured a range of science-themed crafts, everything from making kites to table-top games.

And it was rounded off on Friday with special workshops by the BBC Dragons’ Den-famed and award-winning Sublime Science, featuring scientist Louisa Barron and some spectacular experiments.

The young visitors also got the chance to roll up their sleeves and get their hands gooey by creating their very own slime!
