GlamSciAt GlamSci, we are dedicated to helping disadvantaged men and women into careers and education in STEM.

GlamSci’s vision is to take STEM out of the classroom scenario, putting it back into the local community, giving people the reins to control their own educational journey by guiding them through STEM education, building trust and confidence, and get them involved in the world of endless possibilities that a career in STEM promises.”(GlamSci)

At the BETT show 2019, I was attracted by a table with geodes and muffins spread across the front – a very strange mixture. They were not selling food, they were promoting GlamSci, which is a new opportunity for science in schools. They develop fun classroom materials and activities offering support for teachers and motivating children.

GlamSci is a fairly new charity group based in London that supports young people and helps to further their understanding about science by trying to change the age-old perceptions of the subject. They are likely to come into school and make liquid nitrogen ice-cream or cover rat dissection!

They do:

  • Workshops for all key stages
  • Live Hands-on demonstration
  • Motivational Talks,
  • Fun days and festivals.

The sessions are free, but they may ask for a contribution towards travel and materials.

The charity group could be fantastic on a special day event, a science event or maybe even a summer fete.
