The ASE and Wellcome Trust are delighted to be championing a series of Explorify workshops for Primary Schools across England 's regions in Spring and Summer 2021

Explorify, the free, award-winning digital teaching tool created by the Wellcome Trust is now being offered in collaboration with the ASE, as a series of free online workshops is to encourage primary science teachers to work regionally throughout England in clusters. A number of regional events have been established in order to promote regional engagement and networking. In order to gain the most benefit from the workshops it is strongly recommended that 2 to 3 teachers from each school attend, ideally the science lead, along with one teacher from each Key Stage. There are a maximum of 30 places per session.

Each one-hour workshop will be delivered by an Explorify Champion to support schools to make the most of Explorify, with a follow-up session offered within each region. Bringing schools together regionally will also provide a brilliant opportunity to make links and develop a network of support for developing science provision.

Explorify has opened up primary childrens’ minds to what science really is and how we can explore it in our everyday lives. It has encouraged children to think outside the box and to make links to their everyday surroundings, helped communicate and discover new and innovative ways of thinking things through. Teachers strongly agree that pupils enjoy science lessons more, their confidence and science vocabulary improves, along with their knowledge and literacy skills.

If you are a member school in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, fear not, as there is a range of support available especially for you to make the most of Explorify. Please contact SSERC in Scotland (www.sserc.org.uk), Anita Shaw (STEMPowered Learning – www.stempoweredlearning.co.uk) in Wales and Gill Humes (Deliberate Learning – http://deliberatelearning. co.uk) in Northern Ireland.
