Young Scientists Required
SciHQ is looking for new recruits to its Secret Science Section
You'd like your Schoolchildren to be more excited about science?
Invite Secret Science Agent UU7 to visit your School
Certificates presented to all children who complete your chosen Science Workshop Modules
James's usual Question: "What is your objective in asking me here today?"
School's usual Answer: "We want the children to be more enthusiastic about science."
Which is great because that's what James Boffin does best!
Your Secret Science Agent Day can be configured to suit your needs
- in terms of subjects, groupings of pupils, activities, and session timings
As a guide the most successful formula has been a morning start with a Whole School Assembly when around 50 minutes of general science is presented in a manner
designed to get the children fired up about what the rest of the day has in store for them
They are then receptive and excited about their own individual Workshop module
- whether by Class or Year Group -
adjusted in content and delivery to cater for different ages
At Science Headquarters our Design Professor, Zed,
can construct your suggested subject into a WOW science module
James's usual Question: "Who wants to be a Scientist when they grow up?"
Children's usual Answer: a show of over 80% of hands up from the whole school

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER
Dear James, thanks for a wonderful, fun-filled and exciting two days of science extravaganza! The children at Muswell Hill Primary have had a fantastic time learning about various scientific concepts in a fun way. The dry ice workshop was a real wow moment and the final rocket launch was a definite crowd pleaser! Thank you for being patient with being moved from halls to classrooms. The assembly was amazing. It was a pleasure having you at our school.
Ritu Ganguly-Khan, Science Subject Leader
"I would just like to say that the children and staff had a brilliant science day.
James Boffin was brilliant. The activities were hands on
and children were buzzing after the assembly and the activities.
All in all, I am glad I invited you to come to our school. Thanks!"
From a School in Manchester
The children absolutely did have a great day and it certainly sparked an interest in Science for many. It is clear to me, as it was to the rest of the staff, that you are passionate about Science and teaching these exciting things to children. It was a real pleasure to welcome you into school.
I shall certainly alert other Headteachers around
(Nice email from Head Teacher Tara McStay at St Urban's Primary in Leeds)
Thank you for all the wonderful work you have done with the children over the last two days. It has been fantastic to see the children's excitement and engagement in the world of science. The adults have been totally engaged too!! We have really enjoyed having you here. From everyone at Hexthorpe Primary
(Lovely thank-you card from Headteacher)

"Incredible. All the feedback from everybody all day has been stunning"
"Dear James Boffin,
Thank you so much for coming to Longley School
and running the assembly and workshops.
The pupils who took part really enjoyed the sessions and are still talking about it!
We really appreciated your understanding and flexibility on the day, given our difficult circumstances and how you were able to adapt to the situation so quickly.
Thank you once again.
Kind regards, Jess"

HMI found that ”the majority of primary-age pupils enjoy studying science. However, Inspectors also found weaknesses in the provision of science. In particular, in too many Schools they found - a lack of time allocated to the study of science.” Yes, usually because you just don’t have the time or resources to prepare all the ingredients that you know can make science so much more fun for the kids, right?

CLICK ON JAR TO WATCH
My presentation takes the children on a mission to rescue Skwiddee from the evil Doctor Puss
To accomplish this mission I need to use a lot of different science on the way and I show the children this science in a WOW way. I will invite them to help me out.. All presented in words suited to the age and understanding of the children present
In an Assembly I manage to fit in up to a dozen sequences, so it's pretty quick-fire to keep everyone absorbed
Plenty of WOW experiments happen, including
nitrocellulose flash paper
science versus magic experiment with everyone joining in
air pressure, space, and a jam jar water experiment
Secret Science Agent model jet car for Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
butterflies and a very special science middle
how scientists keep trying, using a jet helicopter kit
Bernoulli's principle and how aeroplanes stay up, easily understood using a toilet roll
a dangerous chemical experiment with potassium iodide and hydrogen peroxide
a slightly scary experiment that everyone can try at home later
If you have a particular experiment you want included just let me know. Indeed we can discuss a different format to my standard presentation if you wish
