Pupils make lava lamps and keep a malteser hanging about

PUPILS from Colyton Grammar School took part in a family science day at the Norman Lockyer Observatory, near Sidmouth.

Other students showed off the contrary properties of oil and water by mixing them with food colouring to make lava lamps.
