Science Boffins celebrate British Science Week 2017

British Science Week is an annual celebration of the best of science, technology, engineering and maths organised by the British Science Association

At Science Boffins, we love British Science Week as it enables us to bring our award winning and interactive workshops, assemblies and events to even more schools across the UK. This year was no different. From Truro to Glasgow, our Boffins delivered exciting science events at primary schools to over 53,000 pupils – that’s more than we ever have before! 

All our science workshops and demonstrations are directly linked to the KS1 and KS2 science curriculum, allowing the workshops to fit in seamlessly with teachers’ lesson plans for the term. From the current curriculum, we devise fun, hands on experiments that show pupils not only the theory but also the practical elements of the syllabus. Our demonstrations include States of Matter, Animals, Plants, and Plasma Balls and Playful Polymers – the most popular workshop during British Science Week 2017.

Blair Russell from Whitleigh Primary School in Plymouth said of her Science Boffins workshop; “We had Boffin Becca at our school today and I cannot say enough nice things about her! She was so good with the children and they all took so much from their workshops. The assembly was incredible; perfect for all ages and every child was engaged. Her behaviour management was perfect as the children did get a little hyper at a few points but she was calm and kept them focused. All teachers have given me really good feedback and I hope Becca enjoyed her day at Whitleigh as much as we enjoyed having her.”

We always make our workshops as interactive as possible with the aim of showing children the wonders of science all around them, hopefully inspiring them to go on and study science throughout their school years and beyond. Who knows, we may even inspire the next Einstein!
