Are you interested in communicating science to a young audience? Lab in a Lorry needs volunteers with a scientific background for events across the North West of England and Scotland during school term time.
Lab in a Lorry is an interactive mobile laboratory which gives young people aged 11-14 the opportunity to explore science through open-ended experiments. Volunteers guide the students through the experiments (optoelectronics and medicine, sound and resonance, light scattering and colours, oil and viscous liquids) and make sure everyone gets involved through hands-on experience.
You would be asked to oversee an experiment for the day. You will be sent all the background material in advance and on the morning of an event you receive full training on the lab.
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one full school day, but you can do as many days as you like. In return you’ll have a rewarding and unforgettable experience, receive some IOP (Institute of Physics) freebies and be awarded affiliate membership to the Institute of Physics for a year.
