The Science in a Van science road show experience provides you and your students with a fun, interactive and memorable way to see, teach and engage with science. Focusing on the Physical and Material World strands of the science curriculum Science in a Van provide experiences which demonstrate how science is relevant to everyday life and how essential science is to understanding the world around us.

Science in a Van is the brain child of Emily and Alan Worman. Their love of science (and of each other) developed over the seven years that they both worked in the education department of the Science Museum in London. Emily wanted to return home to New Zealand but the thought having a day job which didn't involve experimenting with dry ice, blowing bubbles or engaging with young people didn't sit well at all. As a result, Science in a Van (and Space Chick Steve) were born in 2010.

They travel all over New Zealand facilitating exciting learning experiences for students and educators. In their spare time they also update 'Science in a Blog'. This is a free resource full of easy science experiments that you can recreate with your students.

This dynamic duo have facilitated hundreds of science shows, storytellings and workshops in New Zealand, England, Ireland and India. Emily also has a New Zealand teaching degree and has taught in primary schools here and in the UK.

We would love to connect with you!
