A visit to the BIG little Science Centre has most value when...
Teachers prepare their classes to look for something specific, or give them a definite task to complete while they visit. Unprepared students tend to 'flit about' the displays, learning very little about any of them. It is more valuable to visitors if they take their time and examine a few displays closely, with some sort of goal in mind.
Teachers assume responsibility for class management: Teachers know students by name, and can immediately get the attention of the odd individual who is treating equipment too roughly, or disturbing other students.
Please remind students that they must not run around the science centre. Some of the displays are easily damaged by rough handling, and that means the next visiting group may not be able to enjoy them.
Other days and times by request.
Note: Two classes from one school can visit at the same time, if prior arrangements are made with staff at the BLSC. This option is dependent on the topic and lab/demo chosen.
