P1040530P1040537P1040539From the 8th to the 12th July, students from Humphry Davy School were getting their hands mucky with science on an activity filled project co-ordinated by Geevor Tin Mine.

The students went on discovery expedition around Geevor and Levant Tin Mines, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum and deep into the fishing industry in Newlyn, using fun and active science to explore industry and technology.

Their week included training on how to perform science to the public (science busking). At each location they encountered a range of hands on science that they learnt to master and perform themselves.

By Friday they were ready to put on their own science busking performance at Penzance famer’s market on Friday 12th July. Their performances were so well recieved that Brenda Lemon, who runs the market, would like them to come back and perform every week throughout the summer.
