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 donʼt have all the answers!

As well as offering practical advice on how to teach science, Alom uses storytelling, demonstrations, and audience participation, and brings together ideas from the physical and social sciences, to deliver a compelling message about why every parent should be their child’s first science teacher.

The talk is aimed at adults but Alom can offer a “workshop” or “family fun day” version for families which includes time to try out some science activities.
