Science Ambassadors go Nuclear!

Year 5 Science Ambassadors visited Heysham Nuclear Power Plant.

Pupils were lucky enough to visit Heysham to find out all about how electricity is generated at a nuclear power plant. They investigated electricity through lots of hands-on activities and discovered loads of interesting facts!  We then rounded off the visit with a guided tour of the power plant, visiting the generators, the nuclear reactor and the control room.  Pupils were praised by staff at Heysham for their excellent behaviour, participation and probing questions about nuclear power.
