The very best science and maths entertainment for schools

Science teachers know how difficult it can be to plan their activities for National Science and Engineering Week in March.

It can be a struggle to find a good quality in-school presentation. Sometimes the science is good, but the presentation lets it down. Or the presenter is engaging, but the science is a bit thin. And with so many providers available online, it’s impossible to tell who the genuine professionals are.

SciEnts is a new ‘one-stop shop’ for schools looking to book an entertaining science or maths show. It features only experienced, engaging presenters offering professional levels of service who will be happy to appear at your school or science week event. There are 20 to choose from, covering various STEM subjects and performance skills:  from musicians and magicians to actors and stuntspeople.

An in-school science or maths show supports busy teachers by offering amazing curriculum-linked shows for their students. The site features only experienced, engaging presenters offering professional levels of service. They are all willing to travel UK-wide and all come with an enhanced CRB and adequate public liability insurance. The site allows teachers quickly to select from primary and secondary and also gives guidance for teachers about booking and making their STEM engagement day run well.

Ameoba to Zebra, Ian Dunne, Simon Watt, Visualise and David Hall use the power of theatre to tell a story of science which charms and engages audiences of any age or ability. Former science teachers-turned-Circus performers, James Soper and Dr Ken dazzle their audiences with a combination of physics and high-energy circus skills.

If maths is more your cup of tea, we have several performers with specifically maths-oriented shows. Rob Eastaway can show you mind-reading tricks based on maths from his numerous books, Colin Wright demonstrates the maths of juggling, Matt Pritchard uses his maths magician skills and Bubblz the Maths Clown introduces maths to younger audiences.

The secrets of our universe can be explained through the musical performances of Doctor Lewney through rock guitar, or modern day rap with Jon Chase, or through a magical atmosphere of a darkened dome. Or if you fancy an explosion of science through adventure and stunts try Huw James, Fran Scott, Matthew Tosh or one-man-zoo, Mike Leahy.

Last but not least, the ‘science made simple’ team, Becky Holmes and David Price bring their unique blend of enthusiasm to igniting your pupils’ natural curiosity for science through busking and storytelling in the classroom.

Bringing a real scientist, engineer or mathematician into the classroom provides a direct link of personal experience between science and maths in the classroom and the world outside. If you want to genuinely engage children or adults with profound and practical science and maths for a reasonable price, you simply can’t beat a professional science show. All our performers are flexible and experienced enough to ensure your event goes smoothly and successfully, even if you’ve never hosted one before.

SciEnts offers only the very best performers via a single, easy-to-use web page:
