How did you get involved with Science on Stage?
I got an invitation from a colleague from our NSC, to apply to the London festival with a project for primary school students. I was selected for our National festival and was able to attend the European Festival 2015. It was such a rewarding and fulfilling experience, that I kept on learning and sharing projects with colleagues around Europe.
