School children witness quarry blast
A group of students in the U.K. recently got the chance to witness a blast at a local quarry.
The students, from Norton St. Philip school in England, visited Moon Hill Quarry in Somerset just before Christmas holidays, Frome Standard reported.
The students experienced rock testing and science experiments along with a tour of the quarry, and some saw a quarry blast.
A school spokeswoman told Frome Standard that the blast “was the highlight of the term” for the students who saw it.
