Pupils at Stobhill Primary School in Gorebridge had a full programme of events for their recent science week.

Parents and families were invited to take part in fun science classes, a quiz, and varous challenges, as well as model making.

The week-long programme also included a science fair, trip to Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, and visits from a scientist, vet and psychologist.
