ASE Book of the Year Awards

Posted on Mar 19, 2017 in Writing

Much excitement when Self-Destructing Science: Space was a finalist in the Association of Science Education’s first Book of the Year Award!

The prize was announced during a special ceremony at the ASE Annual Conference in January 2017. I went with the brilliant and very lovely Emily Lunn from Bloomsbury, who’s editing the next FOUR books in the series – a serious amount of paper engineering!

Huge congratulations to the winner Paul Lyle for The Abyss of Time (Dunedin), and to the other finalists Terry Russell and Linda McGuigan who wrote Exploring Science with Young Children (Sage). It was such an honour to be part of the day, and thank you to the ASE for this lovely review for Self-Destructing Science!

” This is a great book, full of facts and relevant activities and experimenting. It is an ideal gift for a child from grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., or a parent doing home schooling. Teachers running a school in a hospital setting would get great ideas from this book and it could give a primary teacher inspiration for running a science club or summer school” – ASE Science in Education, February 2017

I’m really pleased to say that I’ll be running a Self-Destructing Science workshop at the ASE South East Conference 2017 in June – find out more here: http://www.ase.org.uk/conferences/se17/
