That's quite the usual kind of feedback James Boffin gets after a School science event visit. That's from the children and the Staff.
"Best day ever" "Best assembly ever"
"Best workshop ever" "Best show ever" "Best scientist ever"
Everyone loves the Secret Science Agent UU7 persona and storyline.
You can bring this huge 'fun with science' to your School.

Where others sway, James Boffin rocks!
James Boffin is a Secret Science Agent. Codename UU7.
He is a character whose performances engage and excite
children with science using elements of entertainment, education, and
amusement so that they grasp and remember scientific principles.
His portrayal, styling and presentation are a 'James Bond 007' pastiche.
They are formatted as a mission storyline where, as a Secret Science Agent, he has to use lots of science to complete this mission successfully. He shows the children this science using experiments, all explained in words to suit the age and understanding of the audience.
"Who wants to be a scientist when they grow up?" he asks afterwards.
A show of over 80% of hands is the norm.

There is one well-tried structure for a successful Science Day, but you can customise your Day in any way you want to - UU7 can make it work.
The recommended way is to start with a whole School assembly of up to an hour, followed by individual Workshops to Class or Year groups.
This is a science show designed to engage and excite the children and get them receptive and eager for what else is to come.
While you can specify experiments you want to cover, UU7’s signature Assembly presentation is very popular.
His mission assignment is to rescue Skwiddee from the villainous Dr Puss and he tells the story of how he did this and all the science he had to use to mount the rescue.
Showing experiments like . . .
nitrocellulose flashbomb paper
investigating a science versus magic illusion, with everyone joining in
air pressure, space suits, and a jam jar water test
Secret Science Agent model jet car for Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
butterflies, and a very special science middle
how scientists keep trying, using a simple science model helicopter kit
Bernoulli's principle and how aeroplanes stay up, easily understood using a toilet roll
a dangerous chemical experiment with potassium iodide and 35% hydrogen peroxide
a slightly scary experiment that everyone can try at home later
You can have workshops custom-designed on a science subject of your choice, or you can choose from a selection of ready-made topics.
Workshop session times are usually between a quick-fire 20 minutes and a more hands-on 60 minutes. Around 40 minutes is quite the norm, but it all depends on the time available, the number of children involved and how many days your budget will allow for, and what you want to achieve.
Science HQ is happy to co-operate with you in drawing up an effective timetable.

They said it was the best day ever.
The whole school, children and adults alike, thoroughly enjoyed the activities of the day. Every single child had a positive comment to make.
so much for a truly brilliant party - all the children were talking about it at
school yesterday (and the parents).
The children absolutely did have a great day and it certainly sparked an interest in Science for many. It is clear to me, as it was to the rest of the staff, that you are passionate about Science and teaching these exciting things to children.
Thanks James, for all your work on the day. You really animated the Bradford Science Festival and the evaluations are all very positive.
Thank you for all the wonderful work you have done with the children over the last two days. It has been fantastic to see the children's excitement and engagement in the world of science. The adults have been totally engaged too!!
Attended a great party on Saturday - James Boffin you really entertained the children - loved the James Boffin persona/stories and the experiments. Highly recommend if you are thinking of a children's party idea or a school event. Thanks James
Dear James, thanks for a wonderful, fun-filled and exciting two days of science extravaganza! The children have had a fantastic time learning about various scientific concepts in a fun way. The dry ice workshop was a real wow moment and the final rocket launch was a definite crowd pleaser! The assembly was amazing. It was a pleasure having you at our school.
