Sarah and I actually met online as she is a fellow blogger, and had so much in common that we became fast friends. Now she works as the Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the Scientists in School program...which I absolutely love - and I talk about why in the clip.
Something we didn't mention is that this program is also a great way to bring parents into the school, as the students are usually split into groups with a volunteer needed to lead each activity. If no one is available we often ask older students to help out, but it can be a wonderful opportunity for parents who want to get involved in the classroom.
We couldn't leave the studio without taking a selfie...and please note that this is what I look like *after* a spray tan. (I like to call it my Irish-girl-inside-all-winter look.)
