Demo: The Movie


Head to the official site at is run by Jonathan Sanderson, Alom Shaha and others, all of whom are the sort of people you’d like to take down the pub and yak to for hours on end about science demonstrations.

It’s a StoryCog production. Nobody’s paying us for this, which may explain the lengthy gaps between posts. If you’d like to help fill those gaps, get in touch!

This film follows science teacher Alom Shaha as he goes on a journey to explore the use of demonstrations in science teaching… Demo: The Movie is part of a wider campaign called Get Set Demonstrate which aims to support teachers and technicians in getting more impact out of school science demonstrations.

In addition – if you’re a teacher in the UK, do consider taking the pledge to perform a demonstration for your students on 20th March. There are discounts from Timstar and access to Twig World up for grabs. Sign up at the Get Set Demonstrate page!
