How to be your child’s first science teacher

Doing hands-on activities with children is the best way to get them exploring the world around them and thinking like future scientists and engineers. However, many parents lack confidence in doing science with their children, compared with reading, writing or drawing. Teacher and author of ‘Mr Shaha’s Recipes for Wonder’ Alom Shaha will show how every child can be a scientist even if parents don’t have all the answers!

Alom will be giving versions of this talk at various venues around the country – check below for one near you
