Totally loved how you delivered this class online!!! Really well done. Thank you! It was great having the 2 guys … especially at the start when he went a bit fast on the instructions so it was good to have second guy giving feedback and repeating instructions. Loved the video at the end, the kids loved the activities! We’ve tried a few online classes for science but that was by far the best organised and run!
Thank you again for a wonderful presentation last night. Your excitement for science definitely inspires and gives confidence to educators to include science in their everyday teaching programs. You make science easy to understand and show that it can be implemented for all ages and stages. Thank you for sending through the links below I will forward this on to all the participants. Have a great weekend!
