Event description

Description

Science Oxford are excited to announce our latest opportunity for local schools. We’ve teamed up with Flavour SenseNation to offer a free CPD session for primary teachers. Thanks to funding from the Wellcome Trust, they've been uncovering the hidden science behind our appreciation of food and flavour since 2011. This project links our food choices to the senses, health and the environment through fun and interactive teaching.

This free twilight session will supply you with the skills and knowledge to take these activities into your classroom and we’ll even give every attendee a kit pack to get you started.

After the session, there’s plenty of support for you to run the activities with your class. FSN have taken a fresh look at teaching resources for primary science and the result is a suite of online resource sheets and kits. All of the plans are highly practical, cross-curricular and have been classroom tested.

We’ll provide tea, coffee and biscuits – just bring yourself! If you have any questions, please contact Sophie on sophie.batin@scienceoxford.com. Please note that we are a city centre location best reached by public transport.
