Mostly Books will be selling books at the ATOM event with Alom Shaha at Fitzharrys School on 27th March.
Physics teacher, author and film-maker Alom Shaha will be appearing at Fitzharrys School on Wednesday, March 27th. He's passionate about getting kids into science, and he'll be talking about 'Being Your Child's First Science Teacher' on Wednesday, March 27th at 7pm.
Doing hands-on activities with children is the best way to get them exploring the world around them and thinking like future scientists and engineers. However, many parents lack confidence in doing science with their children, compared with reading, writing or drawing – even sometimes when they are scientists or engineers themselves! Teacher and author Alom Shaha will talk about his own introduction to science and show how any parent can help their children to really learn from their curiosity about the world – so they can take the step from "wow!" to "how?"
Alom Shaha has created, written, produced, directed, and appeared in a wide range of science communication projects, ranging from TV series to live science shows. He teaches part-time at a comprehensive school in London. His book 'Mr Shaha's Recipes for Wonder' will be on sale after the event and you will have the opportunity to have it signed by Alom Shaha.
Doors open 18:30 Talk begins at 19:00.
Tickets £5 adult & £2.50 for under 16s. For more information and tickets, please go to the ATOM Festival website.
