Event description

Description

As part of the centenary programme of the Royal Air Force, the Historical Association and the Institute of Physics are offering a day of free CPD to teachers at Newark Air Musem on Saturday 21st April 2018.

This CPD is funded by the RAF, and intended to support and enhance the RAF100 Schools programme of history and STEM materials. All teachers and technicians, regardless of their specialist subject, are welcome.

The day will include practical sessions on ideas that teachers can take back to their schools and use with pupils, whether in STEM and History clubs or in lessons. The material is aimed at ages 11-16, but could be adapted for use with younger pupils, or sixth-formers.

There will also be a tour of the museum; perhaps it would be a good place for a school visit later in the year. Museum staff will be happy to answer questions.

Programme for the day

10:30 Registration and coffee – ample free parking on site

The CPD is provided by an experienced teacher and workshop facilitator.
