Bright Sparks: Science is Fun!
Reaching Wider, EDT and Theatr Clwyd
To make science fun, thereby engaging pupils and raising aspirations. With early interventions such as these, it is hoped that pupils will have a goal as they progress to secondary education.
With the help of Professor Sparky and Eric, his nephew, in a fun and friendly atmosphere pupils will support Eric in passing his forthcoming science exam. This will involve researching and completing tasks as well as advising Eric on answering a range of questions in scientific areas. The activities will promote team work as well as presentation skills.
These 2 three hour sessions have been most successful in previous years in tackling the barrier that science is difficult and sometimes that “only boys do science”. At the end of the two sessions, boys and girls alike will have more information on the different paths science can take. Aspirations and self-confidence will be enhanced.
