The FLS is a brand new immersive and interactive online experience. This will consist of engaging virtual keynotes and practical interactive sessions to inspire students, families and educators from the comfort of their own homes. Come and take part…

Magician, Author, Educator
Joshua Jay

Josh will explore how magicians create seemingly impossible feats and how this can be applied in the classroom and in our own creative pursuits. His keynote explores the techniques underpinning his work, such as the guiding of attention; the framing of perception; and the staging of surprises. Josh is also going to mystify us along the way with some of his signature illusions.

Physics Girl

Her videos total over 125 million views. She is an MIT graduate and an Astrophysicist and in her own words Dianna says: “I love how physics can explain the weird quirks of our universe.” She will be engaging us with exciting experiments that can be done in the home to explain real world science whilst having fun!

Comedian and Freestyle Rapper
Chris Turner

Chris Turner is an award-winning British comedian and freestyle rapper. He is a founding member of Racing Minds, one of the most respected improv troupes in the UK and a sell out show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

He will reveal his secrets and discuss how his techniques can be used to improve working memory and increase confidence when public speaking.


Alice Chiaverini and Marc Parodi are Kiz! A French band who specialise in creating contemporary music with everyday sounds.
