Ideas for Educational Visitors

Discussion in 'Science' started by traineeteach09, Jul 15, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I'm a secondary school science teacher, and am looking for ideas for a science day next year. I've just run a rocket day, and would like any suggestionsof companies that can be hired for the day to run workshops. It can be any subject (as long as its Science based).
    Thank you

    You might try Ian Dunne aka Science Magician. I've had him in for a morning, check him out for ideas, he's very flexible. I charged my kids £1.50 to cover the event, well worth it.
