Queue here for your liquid nitrogen shower

The children just did not want to leave Glebelands School at the end of the latest community science event.

Instead, they were queuing with their mums and dads at the front of the hall to have a liquid nitrogen shower, courtesy of the evening's host, Sky One's Brainiac, Dr John Kilcoyne.  There was a buzz of excitement as 300 people took their seats for the finale of the school's science community week challenge.

Amongst the guests were local MP Anne Milton and former Mayor of Waverley, Cllr Len Bate.

Everyone enjoyed the bangs, fizzes, smoke and yet more bangs as Dr John Kilcoyne presented ‘Fuelling the Future, Fuelling fun’.  His talk was based around energy – lots of it.  He made it interesting and relevant to the children. "It contained lots of science, but most importantly it was funny and very loud," said a school spokesman.

One member of the audience described Dr Kilcoyne’s presentation as "very inspirational and great fun - just the sort of thing to encourage the children to continue to take an interest in science".
