This year, British Science Week is going to look a little different. Normally I will be all over the place, doing shows & workshops at schools and festivals. But not this year. Not only can we not physically be present, many teachers have struggled to plan even virtual events because of changing guidance and uncertainty over whether schools will be open, or teaching remotely.
After a request from one school to make a short video they could play during a (virtual) science week assembly, I decided to make it public, so any teachers can use it for their Science Week plans. It includes a bit about my career and why I love science, some fun illusions, a challenge for the students, and can be followed up by a hands-on activity- I've put the worksheet below. I do hope it's helpful!
