Science experiments are often looked to to spark the kind of enthusiasm for science that will provide us with the ground breaking scientists of the future.
Iman, Enes and Fuad, who are all seven and from the Argule Primary school which is just round the corner from where the new Francis Crick institute is being built in London, and Sir Paul Nurse conducted some science experiments in the Today programme studio.
Sir Paul explained the importance of funding for science in the UK: "We are very good at science in the UK... I don't really know why we are so good."
"Our performance is absolutely brilliant... but companies need to get a bit more tuned in about what science can offer," he added.
