Lab in a Lorry or Labordy mewn Lori needs volunteers with a scientific or engineering background for events across Wales during school term time until March 2015.

The initiative is run by the Institute of Physics (IOP)and is an interactive mobile lab designed to give young people aged 11 to 14 the opportunity to explore science through open-ended experiments.

Volunteers are needed to help guide the students through the experiments and make sure everyone gets to be involved.

You should be able to commit to a minimum of 1 full school day, but you are welcome to come along for as many days as you like. In return you’ll have a rewarding and unforgettable experience, as well as getting some IOP freebies and also be awarded affiliate membership to the Institute of Physics for a year.

Details of the schedule can be found in the Cymru or English leaflets. If you would like to volunteer or have any questions, contact James Bamford.
