About this event

It can be challenging to make the topic of Space practical in the classroom. Join us to explore hands-on ways to support pupils develop their understanding of our Earth in Space and the Solar System.

This workshop is for educators teaching science to pupils aged 7 - 11 years. Educators of younger pupils are welcome, though the session will focus on topics linked to Earth and Space curriculum topics.

Topics Covered​:

  • Day and Night
  • Earth's Moon and its phases
  • The Planets of our Solar System

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • explain using models, the structure of the Solar System
  • identify common misconceptions in the Earth and Space science topics
  • use practical activities to teach Earth and Space science topics

PLEASE NOTE THIS WORKSHOP IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO TEACHERS IN THE UK AND IRELAND.
