Which Science do you Enjoy the Most?

Favourite Science – Schoolchild Survey – Graph from Education Quizzes

The graph speaks for itself – the favourite science of most children is Chemistry whilst the least favourite is Physics. We suspect that Einstein would not have been pleased!

Chemistry is like cooking – just don't lick the spoon.
