BC42 Primary science and stories… from industry (repeated Saturday 0930)
Joy Parvin, Gayle Pook, CIEC Promoting Science, University of York
Contextualising science increases children’s enthusiasm for the subject. In addition to using fictional stories and poems, there are great stories from industry that enthuse children and teachers, whilst providing insights into the relevance of school science to the world of work, and STEM career opportunities. But how do you access these stories? This session will introduce you to interactive websites, practical classroom science activities, strategies to work directly with industry, and complimentary teaching materials; thus providing the tools to develop these opportunities for your school.
Discipline: Curriculum development
