1,000 school pupils to get science lesson from Professor Brian Cox

Labelled the ‘Brian Cox Effect’, Professor Brian Cox has been at the forefront of helping to make science fashionable with take-up of the subject now at some of the highest levels ever at A-Level. Science Discovered!, organised by school science trip specialists Adaptable Travel, will be held in London in November and is aimed at Key Stage 4-5 science pupils from across the UK.

The Science Discovered! event is now in its fourth year, and the huge growth in popularity in science amongst school pupils has helped ensure the event is now more than double its original size – tangible evidence of the ‘Brian Cox Effect’.

The two day Science Discovered! event is organised by Adaptable Travel and will feature Professor Cox, the pin-up of science education in the UK. He will appear alongside Professor Andrea Sella who, like Professor Cox with physics, is helping to make Chemistry fashionable with appearances across TV. They will be joined by Simon Watt who will delve into the genetics of superheroes and put the science behind DNA into a pupil friendly scenario.

Science Discovered! will feature seminars by each scientist, live demonstrations and experiments and the chance to visit the Science Museum and National History Museum in London.

Ian Webb, Managing Director at Adaptable Travel said:

“Science Discovered! has more than doubled in size in the past four years, which shows that this unique event really is fitting with the national trend of school pupils keen to learn more about science, and not to mention experiencing a live science lesson from Professor Brian Cox”.
