Carbon Challenge

In the autumn of 2007 I was a Workshop Facilitator for the BP Carbon Challenge Road Show, organised by EdComs. This involved touring schools in the West Midlands, giving two-hour workshops to educate 14-16 year-olds about climate change.

Although this is not my usual subject area I joined the road show because I felt it would be useful to gain experience of interacting with large groups of young people from a wide variety of backgrounds. This, combined with working with experienced teachers, taught me a great deal about communicating scientific information in fun and interesting ways.
