Being a scientist myself, I was delighted that Alex’s school was running a science week this week. He’s learnt lots, from the water cycle, through to dissolving salt via something or other with yeast. The finale of the week was today’s Mad Scientist Day, where all the kids came dressed as… well… Mad Scientists.
It was a novelty for him, but to be honest, nothing short of a normal day for me.
Alex is now hugely enthusiastic about science, but that’s only because no-one has told him about the long hours and lousy wages yet.
