Festival promises best science classes - ever!
Teachers and pupils are booking tickets for the most extraordinary science, technology, engineering and maths lessons - thanks to Gravity Fields
The education programme running in and around Grantham through September's week-long feast of science and arts-related events is curriculum gold-dust from Key Stages 2 and 3 through to sixth form.
One highlight is the festival opening on Friday 21 September by Dallas Campbell, co-presenter of BBC's Bang Goes the Theory, a programme which has brought science to life to millions of youngsters and is required viewing for Key Stage 2 and 3 in many schools.
Hundreds of places have already been booked by schools for workshops, theatre, science shows and presentations running through the day and into the evening, with free after-school talks for younger pupils and 6pm sessions perfect for older students.
For KS2 and KS3 the Science Museum shows and National Space Centre planetarium are a must, along with the Apothecary Shop and Alchemy Lab in the George Centre.
A special Family Science day will run at Grantham's George Centre on the opening Saturday (22 September), with Whizz Bang workshops at Grantham's Kesteven and Grantham Girls School.
Both KGGS and Grantham College have accepted an invitation from Cummins Generator Technologies of Stamford, education programme sponsor, to send pupils to see job opportunities in the working world of engineering, science and innovation.
