National Science and Engineering Week – South Yorkshire

http://www.scienceweeksy.org.uk/index.htm

As part of National Science and Engineering Week 2011 I visited Bradfield School, Worral, Sheffield and gave two 40-min classroom presentations to groups of Year 10 students on the environmental science of silver nanoparticles. The experience was (surprisingly) really positive, the kids were great and the staff very welcoming.

I’m now keen to participate further in education outreach to schools, and the STEM Ambassador scheme, which I’m now enrolled on, should assist me in this.

See the next post for a link to a video podcast of a shortened version of the nanosilver presentation.
