Children only develop their potential for learning through exposure to stimulation and passion within a secure environment which is laced with enthusiasm!Taken from an interview with Philip Rose on BBC Radio 5
Philip Rose – Founder and Presenter
SciTech is the manifestation of Philip Rose’s personal theories on how to deliver science to children. Like many of his contemporaries, Philip grew up in an education system that failed to recognise his dyslexia, a condition he now regards as a gift .
“Over the years I have come to realise that I do not depend on text as much as other adults do when it comes to learning. My text processing abilities are like those of many children. I can read and write perfectly well, but it requires significant mental effort which is distracting from the learning process. Pictures and sequences are a much more natural learning media. Maybe this is why I seem to be able to positivley engage so many children.”
The reason SciTech lectures and workshops are in repeated demand is because of the presenter’s adherence to these fundamental beliefs. SciTech’s success stems not just from it’s ideas but from their implementation, which is wholly dependent on the professionalism and effectiveness of it’s presenters.Philip Rose BSc. (Hons.) MBCS
Demand for his work has come from further and wider sources. He has developed and delivered lectures to school children for organisations such as Astra-Zeneca Pharmaceuticals, Manchester Airport, McLaren and Mercedes as well as working in schools directly. He has worked extensively with The National Science Museum in London as well as many other public venues, His work has taken him into Europe and Canada working for the International Schools and the schools of the armed forces.
Philip’s work has extended into broadcasting. Besides his radio work with the BBC he recently originated the science for Granada Television’s ‘Mad Science’ programmes.
The success of Philips’ work has been propagated not only through his in-school work and public lectures but through his inset lectures where he equips teachers with a tool-box of physical activities that involve the children in learning. Philip delivered such an INSET at the ECIS conference in Nice (1996) and again in Amsterdam (2002).A Note About Dyslexia
