The family science day was well supported by staff from the Shell Fife NGL Plant at Mossmorran.  Children and their families took part in science investigations featuring electricity, energy transfer, forces and motion and materials.

The family day is the culmination of a week of school workshops in Fife encouraging children to explore and question science in a fun, hands-on way.

Meg Post – one of the workshop leaders from the Shell Education Service – said: “Having fun with science at an early age can encourage children to take that interest to secondary education and beyond and this is what we hope to achieve through our workshops and family days”.

Alex Baird – Plant Installation Manager at Shell’s Fife NGL plant – said: “Science plays an important role in meeting some of society’s most pressing challenges, particularly the need for cleaner and more reliable energy.  The innovative use of science is key to addressing that challenge so encouraging children of a young age to get interested in science is extremely important. 

“I’d also like to thank the Mossmorran staff and their families for all their support and work to make the science week and family day in Fife such a huge success.”
