Teacher has a scientific story to tell pupils.
Barry Patterson has a grant of pounds 7,390 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council to tell his science story, Mr Beetle's Watery Adventure.
The story begins when a small beetle is blown onto the surface of a pond and goes on to highlight the properties of water.
Mr Patterson said: "The show looks at the properties of water through a series of simple experiments and demonstrations. It also looks at the natural history and ecology of water as well as why water is so important in today's modern world."
The story was developed jointly by Mr Patterson and physics experts at the University of Reading for older primary school children.
Mr Patterson, of Highland Road, Earlsdon, Coventry, is familiar to many people for his appearances as the green man, or wild man of the woods, at various environmental events.
