GOOEY slime and other science experiments kept children entertained.

Port Solent invited a scientist from Science Boffins down to its playground as part of a summer Kids’ Club.

The children had the opportunity to make green slime that they could take home in tubs.

They got to mix the ingredients that turned it from a liquid into a sticky solution.

Michaela Crane, from Titchfield Common, took her son along.

Charlie, aged six, enjoyed making the slime and Michaela said it’s great that free events are available for kids during the summer.

She said: ‘Charlie had a great time.

‘He loved making the slime which is something different that most children will never have done.

‘We had a picnic beforehand so it made a nice day out.’

As well as making the slime, Matt Johnston from Science Boffins, showed the children experiments with hydrogen peroxide.

He said: ‘The children always love making the slime.

‘We do kids parties and things like that so it was nice for Port Solent to invite us down for the day.’

Port Solent has their kids club activities every Tuesday and Thursday of the summer holidays.
