Native Scientists workshop

Our exciting new partnership with Ogden Trust has meant a busy term of Science this term. Just before half term, 24 young Scientists from Stockwell, Jessop, St Saviour’s and Loughborough Primaries, all Spanish speaking, met a group of Spanish speaking scientists from a range of professions, all working in London including the field of Astrophysics and Medicine. The scientists worked with the children on a range of investigations and told them more about their own work. The unique feature of this workshop was that it was all delivered in Spanish. The room was full of lively chat, questioning and problem solving. At the end of the session children unanimously agreed they had enjoyed and learnt more about Science. We hope to run more of these workshops with Native Scientists, in other home languages. Thanks to Stockwell Primary for hosting this brilliant event.
