Tanya Dempster C Sci Teach ASE FO. IoP Teacher of Physics

Session 1

either Space - Not just for Year 5 - Sarah Eames C Sci Teach and Jane Banham

Sarah and Jane will share their first hand experiences of increasing children’s science capital through the topic of Space. This will include practical activities that will integrate science and technology plus how space can be used as a context for literacy and numeracy. Whole School Space Weeks, Space camp sleepovers and learning about how real scientists; past and present, male and female and both dead and alive can increase science capital and engage even the most reluctant learners. Finally we will ensure that you have time to make a rocket and fire it!

  • Target audience: primary students and teachers

    Sarah Eames primary teacher is proud to be on the ASE regional committee, a Primary Science Teaching Trust Fellow (PSTT) and leading her school through three Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) awards she is excited to now be a hub leader in Leicestershire.

    Jane Banham is also proud to be on the ASE regional Committee ,a Primary Science Lead for Derbyshire SLP and is excited to now hold the new Quality Mark for STEM Learning.

    Jane is an educational consultant across many counties as well as a hands on primary teacher.

  • Seeing’ the invisible - Peter Titkin

In this practical workshop we will make a simple infra-red transmitter and detector and then investigate experiments looking at the properties and uses of infra-red radiation. You need very very little skill to make this kit and will be able to take it away with you.
We will also play around with ultra-violet light – again investigating its properties and uses.

Target audience: Technicians, secondary teachers and students

Peter Tiktin MInstP BSc Hons, BA 41 years teaching science, particularly physics in comprehensive schools. Was a Head of Physics, Head of a science faculty and/or a member of our SMT.Also for some 20 years a member of ASE Committees in both South Yorkshire and North & East Midlands. In the last five years has become an Institute of Physics Teaching and learning Coach helping science staff to feel more confident and excited when teaching physics topics.
