Science and maths shows for secondary schools have to be witty, clever, fast-paced and educational. They've got to be technical enough to engage the interest of pupils who may - or may not be - keen on the sciences (and have a knowledge of basic maths, physics, biology, engineering and chemistry), but deliver something for those whose interests lie elsewhere as well.
We don't list just any science shows. The selection is hand-picked and contains only the very best of the bunch. Inclusion in our directory is by invitation only. At SciEnts we believe in the power of great science entertainment and want to see more people of all ages engage with science. Our mission is to showcase the work of outstanding educators, entertainers and performers, and get more really fantastic science and maths shows in schools all over the UK.
The performers listed on this site are ideal for secondary schools assemblies or individual classes at Key Stages 2 and 3, A-Level, or AS-Level. They can be end-of-term treats, science activity days, a contribution towards National Science Week or an early push towards getting more out of classes for the forthcoming year or term. Each one of the acts was carefully chosen for an ability to inspire, inform, and encourage teenagers to enjoy their science classes more. Some are funny, some are beautiful, and some are amazing in the true sense of the word.
There are maths, physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and general science shows for schools to choose from. The performers range from musicians to pyrotechnics experts, but they are all excellent science communicators too.
