The week culminated on Saturday 19th June, with a Family Science day which took place at The Shell Centre, South London and was attended by more than 600 people.

The day involved children and their families taking part in science investigations featuring electricity, energy transfer, forces and motion and materials.

Sarah Langford - one of the workshop leaders from the Shell Education Service – said: ‘This family science day and week of workshops have been a real success, they encourage children to explore and question science in a fun, hands-on way.   It’s clear many of the children have engaged with the excitement and fun of science.’

Sharon Lewis, Community Relations Manager at Shell said: “We believe that science and engineering will continue to play a critical role in the provision of energy for a growing global population.  It is vital that children become inspired by science at a very early age.  These Shell Education Service workshops are a great way of connecting children with science and reach some 60,000 children each year.”
