CHILDREN from all over Fife were joined by their siblings, mums and dads and grannies and grandads at a fun science day in Aberdour at the weekend.

The Family Science Day was run by the Shell Education Service and took place at St Colme House in Aberdour. It was attended by over 1400 children and family members.

The educational event, which was well supported by staff from the Shell Fife Natural Gas Liquids Plant at Mossmorran, saw children and their families take part in science investigations featuring electricity, energy transfer, forces and motion and materials.

It was the culmination of a week of school workshops held throughout Fife, encouraging children to explore and question science in a fun, hands-on way.

Sarah Langford, one of the workshop leaders from the Shell Education Service, said: “Our workshops have been a real success and finishing the week of science with the Family Science Day is a great way to encourage children of all ages to explore and question science in a fun, hands-on way.”

David Burgess, plant installation manager, said: “Science plays an important role in meeting society’s most pressing challenges, particularly the need for cleaner and more reliable energy.
