TV science star opens school lab
LEGENDARY children's TV presenter Johnny Ball was the guest of honour at the opening of a new school science lab in Tonbridge.
The creator of Think Of A Number visited Long Mead Community Primary School on Thursday to admire the £15,000 facility and assist with strange experiments such as calculating the average crawling speed of a maggot.
Head teacher Jo Powell said Mr Ball spent three hours talking to pupils about maths and chemistry at her school and nearby Hugh Christie Technology College.
She said: "He delivered a fantastic show for the students and was clearly very passionate about science. He was very impressed by the new facility."
