I am a support worker at Goldcrest House and was lucky enough to be on shift when James visited. It was good how he involved all the service users, including people that were partially sighted. The presentation got the interest of people who would not normally sit for that amount of time. I would highly recommend James to others, especially those with autism or learning difficulties, and of all ages. I also took part in the experiments and learnt some new science facts! Thank you James.

Special Greetings To The Staff At Goldcrest House
by: James Boffin

Thank you. They were a great audience, Stacey! The interaction was very special. It was a joy and a privilege to share such science fun with them all. It was apparent that you and your colleagues care about them, as well as for them. I'm delighted that you also found out some new science stuff. Greetings from Science Headquarters.

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. 

Thank you 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.

I would like to say how much our children enjoyed James Boffin at our youth club last night. James entertained around fifty 4-8 year old children and they were all mesmerized by him, as were the thirty 9-15 year olds. The kids were all laughing and shouting their little heads off. The feedback from the parents the day after was fantastic. Apparently their little ones raved on and on about all the experiments that he had showed them.
