My stage shows and workshops about the brain, aimed at ages 7-adult are highly interactive and demo led. I have performed at schools, science festivals and events around the UK and overseas, bringing my passion for neuroscience and a suitcase full of tricks to help you understand your brain better. I love to include Q&A at the end of my shows, answering questions on anything from dreams to brain transplants! For more details of my shows, please see my website: www.ginnysmithscience.com
Dinosaurs are a fascination and an inspiration for children. Our hands-on, interactive workshops feature genuine and replica fossils from our museum in Hull. The artefacts include teeth, claws, even a genuine dinosaur egg! Highlight of the presentation is a full size replica Allosaur skull (sharp, scary teeth!) Children are told the exciting stories of the fossils then have the chance to touch and handle the artefacts.
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.
