The British Science Festival is coming to Newcastle from 7th – 12th September 2013. As one of Europe’s largest science festivals, with a significant associated Young People’s Programme, it’s an ideal opportunity to think about how enrichment activity and external resources can enhance core teaching. To find out more about the Festival, and to book for the Young People’s Programme with your students, please visit www.britishsciencefestival.org To find out more about this conference for teachers, read on!
Come and discover new resources, explore how you can make out-of-school experiences a starting point for classroom learning, and find out what’s out there to help you bring the real world into the science classroom.
· What happens when infections go viral? How can this provide a dramatic context for STEM learning? Help us develop an exciting new classroom resource inspired by the ‘Epifection’ scenario which will be launched at the British Science Festival.
· Please choose 2 workshop tickets from these 3 options:
(1) How can you maximise the impact and benefit out of school experiences?
(2) How can your students engage with STEM researchers and employers? (3) Current and future STEM careers opportunities
Hear from practising teachers how they do it, and find out about the range of people, places and practical help available to support you.
· Stay to share ideas and swap notes with other teachers, enjoy some food and drink and visit our Marketplace where there will be a whole host of stands from people and organisations that can offer you practical help
This event is FREE to attend.
