Thursday 8th January 2015

14:30 - 15:30

Location : Exhibition Marquee, A110

Speakers

  1. Karl Fairbank - Lascells

Come and have a look at some of the apparatus and resources that can be used to capture interest and enhance student learning in A� Level Physics � Includes a mix of traditional and unique experiments with a wealth of ideas all geared towards practical activities tied to the new curriculum.

Any Story, Any Age, Same Activity - W27

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Palmer, 105

Speakers

  1. Martin Wesley - Sphere Science

Teaching Resources for Particle Physics: Particle Detectors - W24

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 17:00

Location : HumSS, 126

Speakers

  1. Cristina Lazzeroni - University of Birmingham

Resources will be presented, regarding how a cloud chamber and a cosmic telescope can be used in a classroom to collect data and perform real physics experiments that can be repeated in a classroom. The experiments involve radioactive decays, and the detection of cosmic rays, and include statistical data analysis and a comparison with predictions based on calculations. Both sets of equipment are available for short term loans for local UK schools. There will also an opportunity to see how an home-made cloud chamber can be built directly at schools.

Remember the Egg Race? - W26

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : AMS, Lab G9

Speakers

  1. Geoff Auty

There have been many Science/Technology competitions, but the best remembered title is the Great Egg Race. Ideas will be offered which can be adapted to suit all levels of education, to illustrate how short competitions using simple materials can be used to promote practical and thinking skills (and be good fun). It will include trying some items for yourself.

Milk: Friend or Foe? - T46

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Chemistry, LT G

Speakers

  1. Ditte Hobbs - University of Reading

This talk will give an overview of the scientific evidence in relation to the role of milk in the diet, with specific emphasis on nutrient status in school children and chronic disease in later life.

Support for New Science A-levels - T48

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Carrington, 201

Speakers

  1. Mark Langley - National Science Learning Centre
  2. Becca Knowles - National Science Learning Centre

Innovative Learning Resources for Protein Structure and Function - W25

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Palmer, G09

Speakers

  1. Dr Peter Hoare - Newcastle University
  2. a representative of the PDBe - Protein Data Bank in Europe

This workshop will introduce the Protein Data Bank, the worldwide repository for 3D protein structures. We are collaborating to produce innovative resources which use the PDB to teach fundamental concepts in protein structure and function for UK A-level and equivalent courses in both chemistry and biology. The resources were produced by an MChem project student and further worksheets and new topics are planned. The resources were trialled in the UK and feedback was overwhelmingly positive from both students and teachers.

Creative and Tactile Astronomy - W105

Thursday 8th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : AMS, Lab 166

Speakers

  1. Alison Alexander - Science on Stage
  2. Ruth Wiltsher - Science on Stage
  3. Lina Canas & Isabel Borges - Planetario Calouste Gulbenkian

Explore the Universe using all your senses. Design a plant, feel a constellation, hear a meteor, tracec a comet, walk through the solar system. Since the Science on Stage Festival 2013, Alison, Ruth, Isabel and Lina have been developing a workshop designed for both the fully sighted and visually impaired. In this workshop we set out to enhance people's understanding of the universe with activities that explore it tactilely, creatively, aurally and hopefully one day through taste! Come nad have a go yourself.
