The Disovery Park at Sandwich - the former site of the drugs company Pfizer - was taken over by hundreds of primary school children this week for Britain's biggest ever science lesson.
Hands-on experiments included extraction of DNA from fruit, murder-mystery forensic tests, and the creation of a witch's cauldron. Nashreen Issa sent this report from the East Kent Science Jamboree.
Around 2000 school children from across Kent will be taking part in a science jamboree at Discovery Park in Sandwich.
The young, budding scientists will be getting involved with experiments, forensics test and identifying Kent seashore wildlife.
A security guard has been rescued after getting stuck in mud in Kent. Two lifeboats helped pull the man to safety in Sandwich last night. He was treated by the ambulance service, but wasn't injured.
The old Pfizer site in Sandwich in Kent has been shortlisted for up to £6m in government funding. It's one of twelve enterprise zones which will benefit from the £100m scheme.

As families continue to count the cost of the storms which hit the south east - one nature reserve in Kent is counting the environmental cost. Wardens say the recent flooding plunged Gazen Salts in Sandwich into crisis.
The warden says the influx of salt water killed fish and plant life - and has left the ground so sodden that even a stiff breeze could knock over mature trees. Sarah Saunders spoke to Karen Potter and Brian Scott of the Gazen Salts Nature Reserve.
Take a tin of spaghetti, a box of bees and a smoothie-maker and what have you got? In one part of the south east, a recipe for a fascinating science lesson! A science fair, at the old Pfizer site in Sandwich, was put on to attract youngsters to the worlds of technology and maths.
David Johns donned his lab coat and went along to take a look. He spoke to scientist Robert Wybrow, engineer Victoria Roots, Kent County Councillor Mark Dance (Con), and Discovery Park MD Paul Barber.
Homes were flooded, trains cancelled and ports closed. But the true cost of last week's tidal surge is only now being understood. Sandwich and Faversham bore the brunt in Kent. In Sussex, roads like the A23 were partially closed for a time and rail services disrupted.
But one property in Sandwich is counting the cost more than most. The secret gardens at Salutation house lie perilously close to the River Stour. It's estimated that £100,000 worth of damage has been done to historic ornamental gardens after they were flooded.
It's a devastating blow to the owners who've spent years restoring them as David Johns reports. He speaks to Head Gardener Steven Edney, and the Gardens' owner Dominic Parker.
Faversham was one of the areas affected by floods. Tom Savvides talks to homeowner Mike Ellmore and councillor Mike Henderson from Swale Borough Council.
Parts of the South East have been hit by flooding overnight following a tidal surge. The Environment Agency is warning communities and businesses to remain vigilant as they are still at significant risk of coastal flooding this afternoon.
In Kent around 500 homes were evacuated in areas including Sandwich, Seasalter and Faversham. The port of Dover had to close in the early hours due to a partial power cut but is now open. Our reporter John Ryall spent the night in Sandwich.
