Orchard Junior School Visit from Eddie Henbury – Chemistry

Orchard Junior School students were very lucky to have Eddie Henbury with them.

Eddie is a Science/STEM Ambassador from ExxonMobil.

He came to the school to talk to the students about how fossil fuels are used at Exxon and how they try to make them as ‘friendly’ as possible.

This really helped the students in their understanding of energy and where it comes from.


Eddie had lots of practical things to show the classes, including some very impressive bangs!

They all loved the experiments, despite some of them nearly jumping out of our seats!

Many thanks to Eddie for coming to Orchard and for repeating his session 6 times for all of the classes to see and enjoy!

The school hopes Eddie will be able to come and visit again.
