During a single week the combined Bristol Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETLs) outreach team of 8 scientists worked in the island’s primary and secondary schools, delivering lectures and running workshops, thus forming the first ‘Jersey Science Week’. They also gave demonstrations and the opportunity for handson investigation using their Mobile Teaching Unit. The number of students engaged during the week is impressive on its own: they had contact with 22 schools and approximately 4500 students. This case study gives the background to the ambitious event and the lessons learnt for future events of this scale.
