Students from one Croydon school have taken part in a special event aimed at raising standards in science.
According to the Croydon Guardian, pupils from Shirley High School attended a day of interactive lessons where they dissected a heart, among other things.
Students also attended a lecture about the universe hosted by Dr Francisco Deigo from University College London.
Vandana Gaur, one of the event's organisers, said pupils were very keen to learn.
"If we make our teaching a bit more interactive, we can make a difference in every individual and we can create a positive climate for learning by the use of appropriate teaching strategies, which definitely requires funding," she told the news provider.
In other Croydon education news, youngsters from St. Christopher's School were celebrating this week after winning a trophy at the Leith Hill Music Festival.
The students were successful in the under-seven choir category.
