Innovative and challenging cross-curricular K'NEX workshops that aim to inspire and engage the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians and entrepreneurs. The workshops provide the opportunity for the development of communication, teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, time management and fine motor skills. The workshops use active learning and support Curriculum for Excellence.
REAL SCIENCE OR JUST BANGS: THE SCIENCE OF FIREWORKS Explore the colourful and explosive world of pyrotechnics as Matthew deconstructs the science behind firework displays. He'll demonstrate how to create colours, different sound effects, shock waves and perfectly timed bursts in time to music, whilst ensuring that displays are safe. Fully customisable to fit your venue or event and featuring real indoor fireworks, this is an exciting and dramatic show featuring real science.
‘School of Water Wizardry’ We dance as water molecules, forming ice and explaining density; We prove teachers wrong by taking water sub-zero; We stretch, bend and split water. When we’re ready, we’ll blow it up! Everyone graduates. Typically one hour, demo-based show suitable for primary, KS 3 & 4, family or large audiences.
I give lectures (6th form to adult) on this history of science, technology and medicine in London. I also give tours for small groups in London on a variety of historical characters from within these subjects. Their strange adventures and curious personalities make their stories surprising and entertaining. You don't need to be a scientist to enjoy them. The last two years I have been researching the history of engineering in Europe, aspects of which I can cover in lectures.
I make art inspired by science, often using everyday materials: drawing machines from bicycles, long-exposure pinhole cameras from aluminium cans, spherical sculptures from recycled waste, a guided tour of the Solar System by bike. I run workshops with these activities, and give public talks about my work.
Designed to enhance the curriculum and provide catalytic support for teachers we have been developing workshops since 1985. We have activities for all Key Stages & Abilities and all workshops contain elements of STEM and aid fine and gross motor skills. Our History & Humanities workshops are topic based, while STEAM workshops are design and make exercises help develop pupils as creative thinkers, effective participants, independent enquirers, reflective learners and resilient individuals.
Health and Safety advice for science festivals, high-profile stage shows and demonstrations, including reviewing risk assessments. I’ve won repeated commissions for my proactive approach at bridging the gap between what a performer wants to do and legal H&S obligations. My risk assessments and H&S processes are trusted as being thorough by both my firework and science communication colleagues. Previous clients include Cheltenham Festivals and Greg Foot.
THE FX FACTOR: Flames, smoke and pyro are used on TV, in films and on stage to add explosive atmosphere, but how do scientists go about making these effects? Join Matthew Tosh to find out and explore the amazing world of live special effects. Learn how to make a controlled column of fire or ankle hugging fogs without choking the audience and much more. Packed with demos, freezing jets, bubbling flasks, smoke and one or two explosions, this is the very serious science behind stage effects.
