Science Shows for primary schools

Science Shows for primary schools

As a trained (and qualified) teacher and scientist I am able to ensure that your pupils will learn while being entertained and want to engage with science learning in the future, Science Shows for primary schools.

Shows for primary schools, KS1 and KS2, and even stuff for infants and early years.

I can help by assisting learning and good teaching, by challenging and supporting to improve outcomes and making a positive attitude the children will be ready to learn.

Not just a bit of slapstick but real science in an entertaining wrapper of performance and wonderful things. Science Assemblies a speciality.

Science shows for primary schools, Science Assemblies and assemblies of Science…Primary School Science Shows, KS2, KS1, including infants and nursery groups too. Primary School Science Shows. Some call them Science workshops.

Stoking curiosity, provoking engagement, helping achievement,

“Lively, fast paced, packed with info and very funny”

a recent teacher quote.

Curriculum linked

Whatever your Key stage, I am just what you need for your science week or National Science week.

Each Presentation is unique…

well except they all work a treat. The content can change depending on the age range and mix of the audience.
Generally shows are about an hour long, Faraday said that’s enough for anybody. They can be tailored to fit, and, when needs be, I can talk very fast.


All of my shows can be tweaked for any age group, from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4 and work well with mixed public / family audiences, but some are naturally broader than others. I do not make a science show to link directly to the National Curriculum but they most certainly support it or any other structured learning program I’ve found – it is more fun for pupils and teachers to see the breadth of science. I can tailor them to the subjects you want. Not long ago I was asked to get in as many penguins as possible, by a teacher who had seem me before and really likes those flightless swimming examples of natural selection.

A Day

Three or more maths or science shows in one day at a school is not unusual and all for the same day rate fee.  Give me some tables, electricity, a jug of water and sometimes access to a data projector to show pretty pictures, oh and an audience and I’ll give you a show and give the audience back to you turned on to science.
Science demonstrations, engagement, learning and laughs are what I seek to bring.

Click on the links below to find out more about each of the Maths and Science Shows I can offer to your school, festival or organisation. Be it a science festival or any sort of festival, I have even played Glastonbury.

The Robots and things I've made, that I might bring with me to help.

I am proud to be a science performer, the demonstrations I use and the shows I present are made to inspire and educate, But they are more than that; engaging, amusing and interactive.

The children I talked to enjoyed your humour and were describing the Van de Graaff generator and discussing static electricity - the balloon has certainly stuck in their memory. Apparently, Year 4 took out lots of science books from the library on Friday afternoon! Our site officer said that he also enjoyed the shows he visited and that children were engaged.
