We love science demonstrations so much, we made a movie about them.
Demo: The Movie follows science teacher Alom Shaha on his summer holiday as he muses on and discusses the use of demonstrations in the classroom.
“Beautiful & thought-provoking” — Andrea Sella, UCL; “Everyone who teaches science should watch this” — Tony Ryan, University of Sheffield; “You really should watch this in your next department meeting” — Jonathon Lisseman, Hammersmith Academy; “A celebration of the art & theatre of the Science demo. Superb film” — Wellington College; “Even if you’re not a teacher, WATCH THIS. So good” — Ben Lillie, StoryCollider; “All science teachers should watch” — Tom Sherrington; “the best use of Jenga I have ever seen” — Anna Starkey.
Keep an eye on the Demo: The Movie set of posts here for more discussion, ideas, and suggestions.
In the year since this film was released, we’ve heard of its use with trainee teachers on four continents. It’s always gratifying to hear how it’s used and of people’s responses, please do tweet to us or post a comment here or on the film at YouTube.
We hope you find the film useful.
