What were you doing before you became a Fun Scientist?
Before I started my Fun Science branch I worked for the county council in my area – working with school governors and headteachers doing training and supporting them with difficult situations such as complaints. I am still doing the same job but am now working term time only so that I can do some holiday clubs. I was also a registrar and did weddings at weekends but I’ve given that up now.
What is your favourite thing about being a Fun Scientist?
I love everything about being a fun scientist but my favourite thing is being with the kids and seeing their faces when we do something amazing.
Do you have a favourite science experiment or a science experiment that is most popular with the children in your groups?
My favourite science experiment is probably the rockets – so much fun, especially when they have eggs attached to them!! I think the favourite one with the kids is probably the slime making, they just love getting messy!!
What is the funniest/most interesting/nicest thing that a child has said to you in one of your sessions?
Recently I was told that I was “very cool” …. it made my day!
Do you have a favourite service to run (e.g. parties, workshops etc.) and why?
What are you hoping to achieve in the next year?
If you are interested in booking a party, workshop or after school club in the Sussex area then you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
