Arts Derbyshire

Artist profile

Caroline Barber

I am a writer of educational children’s books.

I work as a school science technician, and I am passionate about promoting science education.  I like to find new and creative ways to engage the students with educational hands-on-activities which supplement the science national curriculum.  I run STEAM enrichment clubs throughout the year, and the magic themed activities proved to be so popular that I have written Magic Science.

Magic Science has been entered into the ASE (Association for Science Education) Science Book of the Year Award 2023.

Magic Science is available to purchase online at etsy:  Magic Science Amazing Experiments – Etsy UK and it is also stocked at the Old Curiosity Bookshop in Hathern.
