Fran Scott presents ‘Igniting the imagination’
After completing her MSci in Neuroscience, Fran worked at the Science Museum in London where she discovered that enthusing young people about science was much more fun than sitting in a lab. She has since forged a successful career as a “science translator” touring her live shows and appearing in several series for CBBC, BBC Learning and BBC Worldwide.
Fran's speech is 'Igniting the Imagination'. In television you can have just 3 minutes of screen time to capture viewers’ imagination. Having worked in children’s science TV for many years, Fran knows just how to do this, especially when it comes to Science. Here, she shares her top tips for Science teaching staff on making Science entertaining, whilst still remaining true to the subject. A skill that’s easily transferable back to the classroom.
