      Hello again Dogs,

      No I didn’t – we have excellent teachers at school who were a little bit mad and enthusiastic about their science subject and made lessons fun

      I didn’t particularly mess around in science class but I still managed to singe my hair and sweater with a bunsen burner, and get a few strange chemical stains on my shirt!

      Never! … Unless you count arguing with the teacher … (I hope that your teachers aren’t watching this too closely ..!).

      I will admit here dogs that I did on occasion,
      Part of science is about experimenting and drawing your own conclusions from results. I was generally pretty well behaved though – I had some great science teachers who let us do some really interesting things.
      I did once though stand by the door with my hand on a Van der Graaf Generator, giving people electric shocks when they walked in on an open day… 😀

      Not really. Messing around with chemicals and bunsen burners isn’t generally a good idea anyway.
