The event starts at 3pm with some table-top science demos with local kids – and in fact children are welcome throughout.

A panel discussion follows at 4pm. The aim is to discuss children’s science television and the responsibility of kids’ media for promoting attainable science role models and informal science learning.

Questions to be considered:

  • How has children’s science television changed? What’s better and what’s worse?
  • Are we missing something that we had in the past and what can we look forward to in the future?
  • Have perceptions of scientists and science changed over the years?
  • Does children’s media have a responsibility in informal science learning and promoting attainable science role models?

Chaired by former How2 presenter Gareth Jones, the panel includes:

And of course the audience will be invited to share their thoughts and join the discussion as well.

"Children’s Science Television: Then and Now" is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.
