Busy Times

So here we are on the final stretch of this academic year. It has flown by and I can't quite believe the summer holidays are around the corner.
However this half term is a really busy one for Science2U with lots of school visits and an appearance at The Big Bang North West in July.    nearme.thebigbangfair.co.uk/North_West/

So lots of preparation for all these different events plus we are updating our shows and website over the summer so Helen and I are spending time thinking about where we want to go next and what workshops and shows we can develop for Autumn 2014.

We have been asked to take part in MerseySTEMs Big Bang@school in Fazakerley which has been sponsored by Amey who work extensively with Liverpool City Council.

The theme is rubbish and recycling ( something we are very familiar with from our Catalyst days) Our session is titled Plastics - hero or villain and we have decided to revive an old favourite - we are going to make polymorph keyrings. I have sourced polymorph from e-bay plus a huge bag of keyrings and we have been collecting ice cube moulds. We will be doing 6 workshops for Year 9/10 throughout the day - and using a urn to manage a constant source and temperature of water we should have a great day. Hopefully there will be pictures to follow next week.

Watch this space for more info about our adventures over the next few weeks and all the latest on the revamped website
