Scientific Sue visits Ballyclare Secondary- Friday 27th November 2015

‘Scientific Sue’ aka Sue McGrath is the Director of Science2Life, an outreach educational provider and consultant dedicated to the communication of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) in a passionate and engaging fashion. Her aim is to “effect change, achieve results and make science fun!” and on Friday 27th November she certainly did that on her visit to Ballyclare Secondary School.

 

During her show ‘Scientific Sue’ introduced Year 10 classes to the science and technology behind the “How to train a dragon” books and film series. Pupils and teachers were thoroughly engaged and entertained as we were taken on a journey through the science of dragons – from how they fly and breathe fire to their disgusting digestion.
