TALENTED young scientists were given the opportunity to get up close and personal with some stunning birds of prey.

Year five pupils from across Waterlooville were invited to Crookhorn Technology College for Gifted and Talented Scientists workshops.

Over four weeks they experienced fascinating lessons in chemistry, physics, magnetism and biology.

The culmination was a visit from birds of prey, including owls and hawks. Teacher James Willis, said: ‘We do it to give the children practical experience of science at secondary school level.

‘They got to see how incredibly powerful and perfect the birds are, and how awesome – in the true sense of the word.’
