Science Kinetic Theatre at Benson

As a prequel to the upcoming ‘Benson Science Week’ this month (9-13th March 2020), the school was visited by the ‘Science Kinetic Theatre’ on February 10th and they performed a musical entitled “The Light Fantastic”.

This was a great way for children to find out about light and its amazing properties
