Students at Mulyan Public School joined in on the activities on Wednesday, taking part in a number of experiments throughout the day.
Infants Coordinator Jane Jeffries said primary students don’t often get a chance to take part in practical science lessons.
“Science is that subject that always get pushed to the backburner,” she said.
Over the course of the day students took part in six different sessions focusing on different fields of study including construction, engineering and chemistry.
Mrs Jeffries said the kids really enjoyed the day and hoped it would inspire them to take part in further science study.
“The kids are in and they are working it out, investigating, trial and error,” Mrs Jeffries said.
“We have teamed up with Cowra High School science students to go through the sessions with them. Science is a subject on its own at high school so we want to inspire them a little bit.”
