Winner of the Joshua Phillips Award for Innovation in Science Engagement


I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of scientific exploration. I develop activities which engage on many levels, from the purely sensory to the National Curriculum. I have a passion for making science workshops which appeal to pupils with additional needs (SEN) and am learning Makaton to support this work #WeTalkMakaton. It's a work in progress!


Most of my writing and presenting work is with children in Early Years, Primary and Family groups. My work includes STEM and STEAM projects and will always be memorable! You can find free teaching resources from me on TES Resources, SEND Gateway and 

I am based in Oxford, UK and work under the name Sarah's Adventures in Science. I also work for Lightyear Foundation as their STEM Lead.


My best compliment came from an initially reluctant pupil who said at the end of a session "I love it when we don't do work!"
