@ My most memorable demo is when I burnt my hair when the Bunsen came detached from the rubber tube #fireball #SciTeachJC

@ if kids are engaged, makes teaching the science much easier #SciTeachJC

@ Of course it can. Hope my students would say my lessons are the most fun they have in school. #SciTeachJC

@ that is a good idea to help practice the planning skills for controlled assessment #SciTeachJC

@ Important to remember that "having fun" and "being engaged" not necessarily same thing. #SciTeachJC

@ @ Burning my beard was fun. Putting hand in deflagrating spoon shield was not. Kids noticed one not other. #SciTeachJC

#SciTeachJC agree that forces stuff can work much better as demo, after today would add latent heat demo #sigh

@ @ Absolutely. Engage kids 1st, makes teaching the science much more enjoyable. They want to know #SciTeachJC

Off for diner, my final thought: student voice, therefore SLT say more pracs, less demos! and this is pricey for the dept. #SciTeachJC

Demos can be easily repeated later on to reinforce learning. Pracs can't. #SciTeachJC

#sciteachjc my fav demo involves coloured objects, filters and the LCD projector to teach reflection and absorbtion of colour.

Imagine if schools could head-hunt their science teachers; imagine the science department you could put together from members of #SciTeachJC

My fave demo is distillation with Y7. Finish with particle role-play where kids recreate using themselves. #SciTeachJC

RT @: #SciTeachJC I love the *WOW* factor you can get with demos. Kids ask how? Why? They will remember those demos forever.
