Webinar "It's not magic, it's science you don't see Part 5"

Another session of apparent magic that teaches basic science principles if you know what is happening! This term we will have an emphasis on physics principles, though not necessarily exclusively.  David, Adrian and Paul will bring you more examples that you can use in lessons, with others sharing some of their best examples too.

Please be aware of your time zone, the webinar is at 17:30-18:30 CET (Berlin time).

David Featonby is a board member of Science on Stage and an ex secondary teacher who since retirement has had a wide experience presenting to both secondary and primary students and teachers throughout Europe. He believes that science can be very relevant and accessible to all levels and ages of students. David worked for over 35 years in a large English comprehensive school teaching all abilities. On his retirement he worked for the Institute of Physics as a Network Coordinator in the North East and latterly has participated in several Science on Stage festivals.

Adrian Allan is a chemistry teacher who currently teaches in a secondary school in Scotland. He is a keen magician who combines his hobby of performing close-up and stage magic illusions with teaching science. He has presented magic workshops among others in Scotland, Ireland and at the 2022 Science on Stage festival in Prague, Czech Republic.    

Paul has been involved in physics education for over 20 years. In Ireland, he supports other science teachers through his work with the Institute of Physics in Ireland (IOPI) and the National Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST).
