On Friday 13 March I visited The Batt School in Witney, Oxfordshire as part of their activities for STEM week. This is a primary school (5-11 year olds) and has 2 classes of 30 per year group. I introduced around 60 Year 6 students to the idea of citizen science on the Zooniverse, focussing on BashTheBug. Both classes were very keen to do classifications on the big screen and I had some excellent questions, not all of them “on topic”!

Can you time travel?
