Sir Hans visits Killyleagh schools

Although our doors are not open yet that hasn’t stopped the Sir Hans Sloane Centre getting to work with the children in local schools.

Sir Hans Sloane himself (aka Clive Scoular) helped out while Elizabeth Crilly told the children about the Centre and all the wonderful plans for science and history activities and the exciting opportunities the Centre can bring.

At the schools Elizabeth talked to the children about some of the wonders of our natural world. She showed the lifecycle of butterflies and explained the science behind how their wings are so colourful. The children made their own butterflies from paper using a simple template. Elizabeth also talked about the importance of water and helped the children make their own water filtration systems.

Looks like everyone had a fun day!
