  IN-SERVICE TRAINING SCHOOL WORKSHOPS SCIENCE FESTIVALS

We feel that it is very important that we continue to work with children ia a classroom. It is too easy to forget how young children think and work, what they find easy or difficult. All our projects have been developed in classrooms throughout Scotland.

We run Workshops in Schools for children from nursery age (3-4 years) upwards. We can design projects to fit in with most topics, if necessary (and appropriate). Fees for workshops with children are £250 per day, plus travel and material expenses.

We will travel anywhere, but remember, for distances that mean overnight accommodation extra expenses would be incurred. However we are not too fussy - we're prepared to unroll our sleeping bags in any suitable location, I think!

We have become regular 'performers' at some science festivals - they are a wonderful opportunity to meet people.
TECHFEST 2002 was our fifth visit to Aberdeen's science fesival -and next Easter we should be attending our fouth EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE FESTIVAL.
The illustration below shows us during a very early visit to EISF !

After a couple of visits to GALWAY Science Festival we have a taste for travel, so we are prepared to consider invitations to other festivals - wherever they might be.

We run Design & Technology courses for primary school teachers throughout Scotland and Northern England.
Our most successful course, "Technology for the Nervous" has attracted much praise for offering a painless, even enjoyable, introduction to primary school technology.

Fees are from £320 per day, plus expenses - and we will travel to wherever we are needed! Our silent(?) partner, Ivy, is shown above. She is loaded with all the equipment and materials required for all our courses and raring to go. All we need to find at the venue are tables (and chairs?) - Oh! and a few teachers.
