Gov't recruitment drive shows off exploding instant whip
In an effort to encourage more individuals to become science teachers, the government is turning to YouTube for its latest propaganda campaign.
As part of a new scheme called Your Science, the Training and Development Agency (TDA) has created a channel on YouTube designed to combat the boring image of science teaching.
The channel will showcase a series of science teaching experiments in UK schools, including a fireball of instant whip and the use of a "screaming jelly baby" to demonstrate how energy is derived from food.
According to the TDA, one of the experiments will be "carried out on a massive scale" at the agency's teacher recruitment events next year.
The government hopes to recruit an additional 6,600 science teachers to the profession over the next two years.
