Sixth Formers at Reigate Grammar School enjoyed demonstrating some of science's loudest and most colourful experiments to younger students during National Science Week.

Coke bottles exploded, five pound notes appeared to be set on fire and students learnt how fireworks get their different colours through different chemical compounds, during the week of special lessons.

There was even a competition to design a beak inspired by Darwin's Theory of Evolution.

Sixth Former Katie McGill said: “I have always liked science so it was great to pass that on and see so many younger students enjoy the show.

“The fun of science is always the whizzes and bangs and today's show certainly hooked the students' interest for the rest of the week's activities.”
