Who We Are

  • Smells and Bangs Science was founded by Vicky, who is enthusiastic and passionate about teaching Science  in a Fun, Engaging and Practical hands-on way.

  • Vicky is a qualified Primary School Teacher with a love and enthusiasm for science.

  • Through her experience of teaching, she wants to bring the profile of science to the forefront by making it more accessible and inclusive to all children by inspiring children in bringing the STEM subjects to life and making it engaging for children.

  • Along with her postgraduate background degree in Chemistry and an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry, she was also a former Forensic Crime Scene Examiner with the Metropolitan Police for a number of years.

  • It only seemed natural to combine all these areas together to deliver a fun, practical hands-on experience of science activities with topics which are linked the primary national curriculum science topics areas. Whilst also incorporating elements of Forensic Science and Crime Scene Investigation techniques.

  • Vicky believes by combining these areas of science it will allow children to find out for themselves the numerous routes science can take them and to inspire the next generation to aspire to take more of an interest in the sciences. And so, Smells and Bangs Science was created.
