Meet Mr Shaw

Mr Shaw is the Head of Science here at Pennthorpe. Our resident ‘Wow Creator’, his passion for Science is felt by all who meet him. When asked to summarise the Science Roadshow he said ‘I blow things up, create smoke and flames, defy gravity and produce a colourful rainbow of science magic’.

The feedback has been great from the children (and staff). Several of the girls in my class said they want to be scientists after seeing that. To quote one, "I feel like I want to do science when I am older". St Mary's Horsham
