A group of pupils from St Thomas More School in Peterborough enjoyed an assembly with a difference, learning about the science behind our sewers.
The children got a visit from the Mad Science group which has teamed up with Anglian Water to tell the story about what happens when we flush our toilets.
They heard about Anglian Water’s Keep It Clear campaign, which aims to spread the message that fats, oils and greases in our plug holes and wipes in our toilets can cause blockages and bursts.
Collette Parker, from the Keep It Clear campaign, said: “Young people love to hear about the dark and smelly goings on in our sewers. It’s always a lot of fun to involve them in science experiments which explore how we deal with all the sewage our region produces.”
