One unforgettable moment from this summer was when a young boy, initially uninterested in the event, stood among the crowd during the mini-explosions demonstration. As the film canister erupted into a burst of excitement, his eyes lit up with wonder. He couldn't contain his enthusiasm and turned to his parents, exclaiming: "I want to try being a scientist too! Can we do this at home?"
As we reflect on the summer of 2023, we see a lasting legacy. In the eyes of the children we reached, we see future scientists, engineers, and innovators. For our volunteers, this experience was transformative, helping them develop a love for science communication and fostering skills that will benefit them in their future careers.
None of this would have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors, including the Royal Society of Chemistry. Their belief in our vision and commitment to science education allowed us to provide the necessary equipment and cover logistical expenses, ensuring the success of this year's Roadshow. We extend our heartfelt thanks to these sponsors who made it all possible.
We also want to express our gratitude to the venues that hosted us this year. Their collaboration was instrumental in making this project a reality, and we look forward to future partnerships that will continue to spark scientific curiosity in the hearts of young learners.
