Wacky experiments bubbled and fizzed away as the Science Boffins visited Highfield School.
The boffins, who tailor-make science activities for youngsters, dropped in on pupils in West Road, Maidenhead on Monday for a day of hands-on workshops.
A themed school assembly kicked off the morning with scientific demonstrations before all the classes were able to try their hand at making and eating their own ice cream.
The boffins also showed the students the spooky effects of dry ice and the whole day proved to be a real hit.
Liz Knott, science teacher at the school said: "Sophie the Science Boffin had all the children totally engrossed from the start. It was a brilliant day."
