CHILDREN at Kilgraston’s nursery have shown that it’s never too early to start learning about science. The youngsters made their own soap as part of a lesson about solids and liquids at the school’s new £1m Science Centre.

Nursery manager, Louise Easton, said: “The children chose from a selection of fragrances, colours and decorations to personalise their creations.

“With the help of some of the senior girls and science teachers they were able to use Bunsen burners to melt down the glycerine soap before adding their chosen colours and fragrances.

“Such hands on practical early experiences will undoubtedly inspire curiosity and the exploration of science from an early age. What better way to explore the concepts of solids and liquids than by making our own soap.”
