Education Consultancy

 

Music two children with whirly tubes

science made simple can help you develop the educational content of programmes that will supplement your visitor attraction.

We can train your in-house staff to present shows and workshops, giving you long term value and a resource that can be used as often as you like.

Perhaps a rocket show to complement your Star Trek exhibition? An innovations game show to get all the audience involved, or a make and take workshop using everyday materials? The choice is yours.

With over 10 years experience in the field of programme development, as well as continual experience developing our own shows, the science made simple team can assist museums, science centres and communicators alike.

 

Past Projects:

We developed educational materials and delivered training to volunteers from scientific backgrounds for the Lab in a Lorry project. The scheme has been successfully running for many years and, due to its travelling nature, still continues to draw wide audiences.

We mentored the EPRSC (Engineering and Physical Science Research Council) for their public engagement awards. This involved giving general support and advice for working scientists on how to engage with the public, as well as resources for evaluating the impact of projects.

We developed a brand new show: Music vs The Machine, for the Scifest Africa festival in South Africa. The show is aimed at adult and 6th form audiences, and was designed to address the role of technology in the creation of music, and whether this can replace music created by humans.

We worked with the Institute of Physics and Butlin’s to produce a science show which was presented at Butlin’s sites around the country. ‘Spooky Science’ was written by science made simple but delivered by Butlins staff. A report of the project can be found here. 

The Bloodhound SSC Education team asked us to develop a show exploring the science behind the land speed record car. We worked with members of the design team to write the show which was delivered to 20,000 students in schools across the country

We produced a show called ‘Alex’s amazing adventures’ for presentation at National Museum of Scotland.

The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust asked us to develop some simple science busking activities and train their staff to engage with visitors to their sites.

We developed some interactive activities explaining medieval construction for Historic Scotland and trained staff to deliver these with visiting school groups.

We worked with National Museum of Scotland and Emily Dodd on a ‘Museum2go2′ project. Youngsters developed their own science show with training and demonstration ideas from science made simple. The shows were performed by the students at the National museum in Edinburgh. You can watch a short film about the project here.
