Thank you so much for coming to Crowthorne CE Primary. The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the assembly. All of the experiments you showed the children created a buzz about Science and sparked the children's curiosity- this was evident in how many children had questions at the end! Your explanations of the science behind the excitement were clear and I particularly liked the fact that you emphasised the skills of a good scientist so the children would be able to apply these at any level in their learning. I am positive that there will be many 'dinner table' conversations tonight about what happened and I am looking forward to children coming in with their own research/investigations based on what they have found out this afternoon. For Year 4 and 5 the topics were particularly relevant to their existing knowledge and you targeted these children well to explain their understanding. Thank you for a fun-filled, informative and inspiring assembly.‘ Melanie Todd (Science Coordinator).

Alison Rivett visited this rural North Somerset school as part of a special off-timetable Science Day as the children had particularly requested a chemistry show. All 84 Reception to Y6 pupils enjoyed the 'Wow' assembly about 'Gases In The Air'.

Excerpt from very detailed feedback: ’ Every single child in the audience was captivated. The children were immediately inspired by what they saw and in my next lesson one child exclaimed that he was definitely going to be a scientist when he grew up! I noticed that during the investigation that I taught as part of the science day, the children were much more focussed and were using the learning points and vocabulary which Dr Alison taught them in the assembly in their discussions and observations. The whole school was buzzing all day about science and in the playground the main topic of conversation was the assembly and the science they were learning about – what a way to raise the profile of a subject?!’ The Science Coordinator, Gail Cooke said afterwards "Dr Alison made us think about the everyday in a completely different way. We returned to our classes inspired and ready to find out more about science. One child exclaimed that he ‘wants to be a scientist now!’ and all the children I taught had a new vigour, understanding and desire to discover more science. It really was a wow assembly and the best I've ever seen as a teacher!! " You can read a longer article in the School's Newsletter here:

26 May: PSTT Assemblies, Clifton Primary School, Balsall Heath, Birmingham, Midlands

Tim Harrison, assisted by postgraduate chemist Steve Street, delivered three science assemblies for 480 pupils and 16 teaching staff in Years 4-6 at this and 2 local schools. The other attending schools were Arden Primary School (Sparkhill) and The Rosary Catholic Primary School.

Both children and staff were blown away by the science knowledge that you managed not only to get into the session, but to explain in a way that the children could engage with. Your energy for the subject of chemistry really did shine through in all three lectures, and this transferred a genuine curiosity into the children; in our last Ofsted our children were described as having little confidence in speaking, however I was impressed by the level and confidence of the questions they posed at the end of the year 6 session. The other two schools that attended were Arden and Rosary. As they left, one of the children from Arden said, "I didn't really like Science before today, but I love it now!" True praise indeed!’ Organising teacher.

Bristol ChemLabS worked with PSTT College Member Kate Redhead in the organisation of this visit. This event was sponsored by Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT).​

I would like to thank you for the outstanding assembly that you delivered to our Key Stage 2 pupils. You captivated pupils and staff from the start with an amazing array of chemicals and a huge variety of visual chemical reactions. The assembly was very well resourced and provided learning experiences that, as a small primary school, we were unable to deliver. It was very well structured and ensured that pupils used a range of scientific skills in particular the skill of close observation. Pupils gained a clearer understanding of chemical changes, physical changes and sound changes. It also challenged pupils thinking, especially with regard to temperatures in particular the boiling points of chemicals. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed this assembly. Several pupils stated that they wished to be chemists when they were older. One pupil said it was the best day he had ever had ever in his life! Staff stated that they wished they had had such inspirational teachers when they were in school. Staff and pupils would like to say a huge thank you and I would highly recommend Chemlabs and the Outreach Programme to all schools.’ Headteacher

'Today's science assembly was incredible. At a primary level we have neither the expertise or resources to create such awe and wonder with the children. Tim's assembly was engaging and fun for all. He had well over 100 children (and adults) on the edge of their seats. Our school is in such a high area of social and economical deprivation that some of our children can have very low aspirations. To see chemistry at its finest left our children with lasting and wonderful memories. Children returned to class enthralled and inquisitive. It leads beautifully into our STEM week on the weeks commencing 5th June. We would be more than happy to work with Tim and the university again to enhance our science teaching and learning. As a staff we will now go away with questions and activities to plan for STEM week. An hour's assembly has made a science footprint at Ilminster Avenue. We can't thank you enough' Fliss Hawkins, Science Coordinator

01 November PSTT Sponsored Science Events, Birdham CofE Primary School, Birdham, Chichester, W. Sussex

Tim Harrison gave a performance of the science assembly ‘Gases in the Air’ to 80 pupils in Years 3-6 during a morning session at Birdham.

Ofsted were walking around the hall where the demonstration was taking place, but didn’t stop to see what was going on. This was an enormous shame, because what was happening grasped the children’s attention and didn’t let go. Tim’s enthusiasm is infectious – his motivation is obvious and his subject knowledge is incredible. He handled the questions from the children really well – the answers to some of the more obscure questions were interesting and well thought out. I particularly liked the way he picked up on the words the children were using. If they weren’t scientific, he would let them know (giving them examples of words they could try instead.) The experiments were dramatic and educational at the same time. I could tell the children were enjoying it all, because they couldn’t take their eyes off what was going on and had a hard time sitting still.’ Christian Flaxbeard, Birdham Primary School

Bristol ChemLabS worked with Primary Science Teaching Trust College Fellow Jeannette Morgan in organising the event sponsored by an EPSRC grant held by the University of Bristol.

Thank so much for coming to do the assembly for us. It certainly had an effect on the children because they are still talking about it!’ Headteacher ‘The science assembly was fantastic example of how to engage children and inspire them to become scientists. The children were fully engaged and motivated to listen and wanted to join in, learn and answer questions. Tim was very good at keeping the children's attention (blowing things up is a good incentive). He was also very good at explaining the scientific terms of the children, differentiating when he needed to by aiming different questions and knowledge of specific age groups. Demonstrations were exciting, well planned and age-appropriate and although some children cried, we generally all enjoy the assembly. Many thanks for your time and knowledge and hopefully will see you again for more science facts and knowledge and of course more explosions’. Teacher

The event was organised through Mark Gilronan (Headteacher). The event was sponsored via an EPSRC outreach grant held by the University of Bristol.

(The pupils) loved the activities they took part in - perfume making was brilliant and being given the opportunity and trust to work in a real lab (white coats and goggles) was fun in itself! It was also great to have the perfume, their own creations, to take home and keep. Building the molecular structures was interesting- the children enjoyed seeing and making the models of the chemicals. They all loved the main demonstration with Alison. She delivered a fast paced, exciting presentation, which the children loved and were inspired by.’ Accompanying Teacher
