Dearest readers, I have some vaguely exciting news.
A few days ago I was cycling to work and in between several near-death experiences (my front light has fallen off which makes cycling in the dark difficult, also my brakes don’t really work but my Doc Marten boots provide a fine stopping mechanism so it’s all good, really) I had a revelation.
I spend most of my time working in schools, teaching kids science. So why is my blog only aimed at adults? I use science websites aimed at kids a lot for reference when developing new material, and am always moaning about how crap they often are – the content is usually good, but the majority of children-focused science websites look like they haven’t been updated since 1999. So I thought, hey, I could start a blog aimed at kids, but which would also be a useful resource for parents and teachers.
SO I DID IT. And I would *love* your feedback. The site is called Out of School Science (it was most certainly not my first choice of names but all my favourites were taken).
So please have a look, tell me what you think, etc. I aim to do at least a couple of posts a week on that site. I will still update here occasionally, I guess this is now the X-rated site for things that are inappropriate for OoSS (i.e. penises).
