My Students Shine Again

A few weeks ago I was invited to a reception at the Wellcome Trust to celebrate the end of another successful round of I'm A Scientist, Get Me Out Of Here. I was asked if I would bring along a couple of students who had participated, including the now legendary "Waveicle".

We were all asked to say some words of thanks (in fairness to the students, I did spring that on them at the last minute, because I was worried that they would back out if I asked them beforehand!). I'm astounded that, after several years of setting up and running the PA system at school, and having given numerous talks at conferences, I still held the microphone way too close to my mouth. Ah well. The video says it all really:

I'm in from about 1:30 in, but it's worth watching the whole video, and the second half of it. It was a fantastic evening, and wonderful for the students to meet some of the scientists. If you are a science teacher, and you are reading this, and you haven't signed up for I'm A Scientist, you really must - it is probably one of the best activities I have ever done with the students!
