Inspire your pupils with science

Our schools science shows are about more than learning facts and figures. They are about being inspired by science. Each of our speakers and presenters has their own methods, ranging from music to laughter to spectacular live chemistry and engineering experiments, but they have one goal in common. The audience should leave looking at the world in a slightly different way, with a little more understanding and a lot more wonderment than before.

For young children, a spectacular live science experience can pave the way for a lifelong interest in all things scientific. It can show kids that learning can be fantastic fun and that science has wonderful things to offer. As children get older and their scientific education progresses, physics, chemistry and maths shows can help provide that crucial inspiration all kids need if they’re going to do well at school and move on to university, but you don’t have to be at school to have fun with science. There are plenty of choices for grown-ups too.

General science or physics shows can make great after-dinner speakers or conference entertainment, and they can also be very effective in a corporate events environment. Wherever a group of people are gathered together they can be entertained, educated, and inspired by spectacular science.

We list the best in science communication in the UK, for everyone from primary school children to adult audiences. To help you find talks, performances, or maths and physics shows suitable for your group, we’ve divided up the performers by target age range. No matter who you want to inspire with science, it should be easy to find the right people for the job.
