"The enthusiastic approach and inspirational presentation of Johnny Ball is unsurpassable" - Radio Times
Gifted & Talented Masterclass - Comissioned Lectures
Johnny Ball’s Gifted & Talented Masterclasses (Maths)
As an extension of “Funtastic Maths”, Johnny has now created a series of Maths Masterclasses.
Each has its basis in Mathematics but is intended to be Cross Curricular and appeal to a wide age range. This is in line with recommendations to the government in the recent Smith (Maths) and Tomlinson (Science) Reports, which advocate broadening the curriculum in order to stimulate, enthuse and encourage more young people towards Maths, Science and Technological career paths.
The provisional Titles for these flexible initiatives are :
"Past Imperfect - Future Fantastic."
Johnny Ball's latest motivational show for young people, takes a humourous
look at historic human failings and asks whether the next generation will
do any better? He will show that the vast improvements in technology make
greater success much more likely. As ever, he will enthuse over Maths
and Science, but as everything today is handled Scientifically, and in
the current Enterprise Culture, he will explain that whatever career path
they choose, modern technology will give all today's students a greater
chance of fulfilment and of making the future absolutely fantastic.
It then played the University of Glamorgan and is now very flexible and works really well as a Key Stage 4 "career thoughts stimulator."
