Career
Bsc in Aeronautical Engineering (Southampton), MSc in Aerosystems Engineering (Loughborough), MA in Defence Studies (KCL).  Engineer officer in RAF for 25 years, then physics teacher (full and then part time).  Now part-time for IOP in various teacher CPD roles, and other involvement in physics CPD.

Workshops
Old faithfuls like the compressed-air rocket launcher.  Recently I have developed workshops on physics for primary teachers, building a water circuit to look at potential difference, using flight as a context for studying forces, and Physics on Foot - practicals without equipment.
