FROM Archimedes to Einstein, Ipswich Museum's Mad Science Day travelled through time to capture the imaginations of children of all ages.

As part of National Science Week the museum opened its doors to display a range of interactive experiments and exhibits on Saturday.

Melanie Hollis, one of its learning officers, said: “We've had lots of experiments around the museum from magnetic cars to corn flour slime. We have had a Morse code machine and Science in a Suitcase, who are doing science shows.

“Lots of parents have also got in on the act and are having an excuse to play.”
