Inspiring Children Through Science

This exciting project requires a group of committed and outgoing sixth-form scientists who are willing to deliver an inspiring practical based science course to gifted & talented younger pupils from our partner schools in the King’s laboratories. Students will have free rein to produce interesting and exciting lessons from any area of science; the content of the lessons ranged from firing rockets to making liquid nitrogen ice cream.
