In 2011 we headed to Ghana with a group of keen teachers, science educators and enthusiasts to run two one-week camps in Ghana (from 19 to 30 September) in and around Kumasi, in Ada Foah and in and around Accra.
We took out a selection of exciting science experiments (including water purification, sport science and bridge building!) and ran school-based activities in the two areas. We visited 10 schools and reached over 1000 students and 200 teachers.
Planning is well under way for 2012′s Ghana Science Roadshow, and it is already clear that it will be immense. We are planning on mobilising 16 fabulous volunteers to reach 32 schools all over the country. If you’re interested in coming along, or would like to help plan some cool workshops, then please get in touch. If you’re really keen on helping out – but hate the thought of standing up and speaking in front of people – then we also have places for technical bods, logistically-minded people and general gophers. Please see a full description here. The dates have also been set: we will be in Ghana from 14 to 28 October.
Naturally, you’ll be able to follow our Science Camps through our blog and we may even have some real-time experiments happening within UK schools… watch this space!!!
