This year at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham I presented some fun and lively shows with Fran Scott all about electricity! We demonstrated some basic principles using nice and accessible interactive means to primary and early secondary school groups. Hundreds of students over four days gave the demos a go and tested conductivity with metals, wet socks and themselves. They had a look inside the cores of overhead and underground cables and of course we set fire to some wire wool. Our show was put on for the National Grid and we hope to take it into schools one day.
