 How to be a science teacher – Alom Shaha

Alom Shaha has spent most of his professional life sharing his passion for science and education with the public and currently splits his time between teaching physics and producing and presenting educational videos. In this talk, Alom tells the story of his first scientific discovery, how and why he became a science teacher, the challenges and rewards of the job, what he thinks science education is for, and how parents can contribute positively to their children’s science education.

Alom is a physics teacher at a comprehensive school in London. When he’s not teaching, he works as a film-maker, writer and science communicator. Alom is a trustee of the British Humanist Association, and is the author of The Young Atheist’s Handbook.

Doors at 6.30 pm for talk at 7.00 pm
