What the teachers said about the Energy and Change show

The children were able to make connections to their science topics and came away with new understandings.  Mick was a fantastic and highly engaging presenter.  Our students loved all aspects of the shows he presented and could not stop talking about it for the rest of the day.  We will be booking you again in the future.  Thank you!
