Speed Science – workshop
One of the best things about learning something new is sharing it with others! In groups, Guides take on a series of activities in the fields of archeology, geology, zoology and physics. Then each group is challenged to teach another group one of the activities. This session is perfect to learn new ideas and skills and develop confidence presenting to others.
