Dame Carol gave an impromptu science lesson at a primary school after receiving a letter from an 8 year old pupil.

BBC Oxford filmed the visit and interviewed the pupil, Connie Gordon. She wrote to Dame Carol "..when I grow up, I want to be a professor of Chemistry like you. I would love it if you could come into my class and talk to us." After the visit, Connie said "Today's kind of changed me a bit. I've realised how chemistry is useful to the world and helps people."

See for the video clip of the visit.
