Royal Society Young Scientists Judging Panel – Visits to Seafield Primary School 24 & 25 September 2019

The Royal Society Young Scientist Books Judging Panel are: Hannah Stephenson, Bartek Jakiel, Emma Brooks, Louise Orr, Bekah Albon-Wilkinson and Sarah Forster.

Over two days, on 24 and 25 September, the pupils visited Seafield Primary School and shared the shortlisted  books with pupils. Our panel also shared an experiment from one of the books, which everyone enjoyed immensely: the instant ice cream experiment from Making with States of Matter.  On the second day, all of the pupils enjoyed eating the fruits of their labour, before settling back to listen to our pupils’ presentations on the books on the shortlist.

Emma spoke about the book Kid Scientists and said that, while Einstein became a famous scientist, he daydreamed in class and. .. maybe we should all actually pay attention in class. There were lots of questions for our judging panel and great enthusiasm from the P7 pupils.

The books were then shared with everyone and the primary pupils were invited to give their thoughts and opinions on them. There was also time to try out science lab coats and goggles too, before voting for their favourite book on the shortlist.

Our pupils are confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens and all are being successful learners. They had a lot of fun too!

Huge thanks to Seafield Primary School and to the P7 pupils and teacher Mrs Simpson for having our pupils over the two days. What a brilliant way to share the #YoungSciBooks

It was fabulous, at the end of the visit, to hear the P7 pupils roar: “We Love Science Books!”
