Loved this headline: Health and safety chair undergoes baptism of fire in the name of better school science experiments:

There are less extreme ways to spark teenagers’ interest in science but the setting alight of Judith Hackitt proved a hit with bored-looking pupils in a hot science lab in a southeast London school yesterday.

The year 11 audience at Bacon’s college in Rotherhithe looked on in amazement as Hackitt, the chair of the Health and Safety Executive, scooped up bubbles produced by pumping methane gas through washing-up liquid, then smiled nervously as they were set aflame in her hands.

Sounds like a fantastic demonstration – wish I’d been to something like that when I was a pupil.

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.
