Sam Craven, curriculum leader at Ely College, said: “We are so proud of the hard work and enthusiasm of our students during this year’s science festival.” “We are delighted that two primary schools, Lantern and St Mary’s, also had children present work from their science lessons.

“Harlequin Nursery enjoyed the fair as well. There really was something for all ages.

“This year was bigger than last and we are already planning and looking forward to next year.”
