As the week progressed, we learned how to improve our explanations to the students, which in turn enabled them to gain a better understanding. Occasionally, our explanations were too complex, as some of us are A-level scientists. We wanted to make the show fun, engaging and accessible for all of the students regardless of age and ability.
We finished the show with an interactive question and answer session to see what the students had learned and taken from the demonstrations; "What gases did we mention today?" and "what is the name of the process when a solid becomes a liquid?" The answers, (some being very complex!) were all fantastic and demonstrated that the students had learned as well as enjoyed the show!
Overall we all had a fantastic time producing this science show and can only hope that we inspired some future scientists in from the nine primary schools.
