James visited our school today and the children absolutely loved his workshop on forces. He kept them entertained, highly amused and engaged for the whole hour. The workshop sparked lots of interest in my year six class and provoked lots of understanding and thinking. I would highly recommend Mad Science! Thanks very much!
