CHESTNUTS PRIMARY SCHOOL

Who is Dr Syzdlo?

I want to be a footballer, I want to be a dancer...no I want to be a painter...well, with a Surprise visit from Dr Szydlo their future ambitions then changed to...
I want to be a scientist...
From chemically altered cotton and artificial volcanoes...to nitrogen balloons explosions and combustion in engines Dr James Szydlo took it all to the next levels as he changed their perception of science and gave the children a taster of some things they will be involved with 'hands on' as their education advanced.
He explained a number of phenomenon including how  fuel was derived and how important elements of the periodic table are especially what we breathe in  (AIR!). The children haven't stopped talking about the freezing nitrogen or the magic water as he entertained and educated them for almost two hours!
