Neil Atkin who has 20 years of teaching experience, the last 9 as an Advanced Skills Teacher in challenging schools and rated by OFSTED as ‘Inspirational’ , started exScites to transform learning and understanding. He discovered that the way to succeed was not to try to make the curriculum engaging, but to shift the paradigm and to find the engaging activities then add the curriculum. So rates of reaction can be taught using powerkites, momentum with rockets and the science of survival skills and surfing can hit a huge number of concepts! Having only left teaching recently due to a hearing loss, Neil’s experience is very current. He still regularly teaches and doesn’t deliver anything unless he knows it works.

  • The Institute of Physics – Teaching and Learning Coach
