EXPERIMENTS: Youngsters at Nelson Academy explore the digestive system with Mark Remington during a visit from the Mini Professors science programme

SCIENCE came to life for youngsters at Nelson Academy in Downham Market during an interactive session with the Mini Professors.

The children, aged three and four, learned about the digestive system and used a pair of tights to build a model intestine.

They also enjoyed a story with Mark Remington, known as Professor Mark.

Mini Professors is a science programme which runs classes aimed at children aged two to four.

Mr Remington said: “Science is for everyone, even early years. Children are natural scientists and will experiment with whatever you put in front of them, so why not make that educational?”
