What do teachers say about the British Science Festival?

  • “The experience of going into the science department at the university was probably the best thing. They were able to work with post graduate students who were excellent role models so I think they have a broader understanding of what going to university is about and what studying science at university is.”
  • “[Students gained] An insight into possible careers in science and the chance to meet young adults full of enthusiasm for what they do.”
  • “ [It showed] That science can be fun and entertaining and it switched on one very switched off pupil.”
