During British Science Week Dr Ken will be travelling around the country visiting primary and secondary schools with his science shows and workshops. Dr Ken uses his experience as a performer and school teacher to make science both fun and inspiring whilst making sure activities are relevant to the science curriculum and other cross-curricular subjects.
The next British Science Week takes place between 8th – 15th March 2019. The theme for 2019 is Journeys. There are plenty of different shows and workshops with a Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths focus which includes cross curricular content available.
In Dr Ken's Science Circus Show he will be looking at the journey of objects in motion, how ideas about movement and theories about gravity have developed over time.
How to Save the Planet in 45 mins - this looks at the science of pollution, recycling and sustainability to look out how we can change the Earth's current environmentally destructive journey.
It's All Done with Mirrors - A journey into the hidden world of engineering. Dr Ken's magic tricks and stunts reveals their science and engineering whilst relating it to similar activities in the outside world.
It Doesn't Add Up - A journey into the wonders of mind bending magical Maths tricks.
