Science Live! Educational Science Event

      
Monday 4th March 2019
                    Monday 9th March 2020


Science Live! is designed to give learners the opportunity to come face to face with expert speakers whose knowledge and skill will add value to the teaching and learning experience.

As part of the immersive educational experience, each student will receive their own workbook in advance of the event for pre-trip preparation as well as including park challenges for them to complete throughout the course of the weekend, all covering the fundamentals of Science at Key Stage 4.

Our Educational Events held at Disneyland Paris are the best value you'll find anywhere!

We include group travel insurance as part of our package and unlike other tour operators, we won't charge any supplements for regional pick-ups when you travel by coach.

Also held on the same day will be Maths Live!, Psychology Live! and Media Live! making this the ideal event to bring a mixed group of students from across the curriculum!

    Dr Andrew Szydlo
    Chemist

    Dr Andrew Szydlo<br>Chemist

    Dr Andrew Szydlo is a renowned chemist and teacher and is proof, if it were needed that science is far from dull.  He has given talks and demonstrations at the Royal Institution, for The Lost Lectures, at the Secret Garden Party Festival, as well as several TV appearances.   His public demonstration lectures are theatrical and spectacular, he often disappears in a huge cloud of smoke, swings teapots of liquid nitrogen high above his head, and creates large explosions.  The message however is a more serious one, to explain how useful science can be in everyday life. "My message is, that people can do more with science than they realise. In today's society everyone takes things for granted, and they are used to an easy life, but understanding how things work is very important". 

    We will be working with Dr Szydlo to pre-film a series of demonstrations that he will use as a part of his presentation on fireworks and special effects.

      Davy Crockett Ranch


      Just a 15-minute drive from the Disney® Parks yet seemingly worlds away, the legend of Davy Crockett is alive and well. Nestle into your own private bungalow and unwind in this quaint, rustic escape. The cabin houses can accommodate up to six people in 2 bedrooms, equipped with one double bed, a set of bunk beds* and a sofa bed set within the tranquil woodlands of their natural surroundings. A safe, carefree environment with a magical touch of Disney. Naturally.

       

Students will be provided with a workbook prior to the event which will include a programme of the event as well as background information about the speakers. The workbooks will include park challenges to complete and are a great research tool to be used in the classroom prior to travelling to help students to prepare questions for the Q&A sessions at the conference. As part of this experience, students have the opportunity to quiz speakers, which is always lively, and the presenters are invariably on the receiving end of some testing questions.
