Ri programme of Science in Schools

Our programme of Science in Schools brings our popular demonstration shows into schools across the UK, accompanied by valuable Continuing Professional Development sessions for teachers and twilight shows for families in the local area. The shows give students, teachers and families a chance to see our specially trained presenters in action, delivering science shows inspired by the CHRISTMAS LECTURES. The shows are jam-packed with experiments, demonstrations and the odd explosion! The Ri is set for a rapid expansion of this successful programme across the UK.

The role

The Science in Schools Coordinator is responsible for the administration of the programme. They are the first point of contact with the schools, ensuring the booking process is smooth, and are the point of liaison throughout the process to ensure successful logistical delivery and compliance with Health & Safety. They are the day-to-day contact for our national network of freelance science presenters, managing their calendars and giving them timely support and information about their event. A number of the Science in Schools events are funded by Trusts & Foundations, so the Coordinator identifies and approaches eligible schools, and ensures the Ri fulfils the requirements of the agreed funding. The Coordinator also works with the Marketing & Communications team to promote the Ri education activities to schools across the UK.
