We are ready!

After months of preparation we made the final push today to get everything in place for the arrival of the Summer Scientists on Monday morning.

Doing Summer Scientist week means quite a change from the usual work routine of an academic. I was incredibly excited to be driving a van to pick up the tables and chairs from Bishop King Primary school, although the excitement did wane a little bit after I’d carried 20 tables….

With a van full of Summer Scientist sized tables and chairs we made our way back to campus to train our wonderful student volunteers, brief academic researchers and then get all equipment and games and surprises into the Business and Law building. Well, many hands do make light(er) work and by the afternoon we had finished setting everything up for Monday.

So, here we (nearly) all are! We are ready for a great week of summer science fun! And we look forward to meeting Summer Scientists new and welcome back those who have been before!

    1. Hi Rachel,
      that is wonderful! We are all having a great time this week and it is brilliant to hear that your children had a good time, too! We hope that you’ll come back next year!

      The event is great for us and we will send out a newsletter in a few months to tell you exactly what we have found.

      Many thanks again for joining us today.
