Is language the Barrier to learning Science? - T78

Friday 9th January 2015

10:00 - 11:00

Location : Henley, 102

Speakers

  1. William Hirst

Science is a foreign language, just as foreign as French or German - no wonder that pupils lose interest in Science! I will show that pupils need to be familiar with more words in the language of science at KS3 than they learn for French at GCSE. I will also present myriad ideas for word games that complement any scheme of work and will increase pupil understanding.

Biology in the Real World - Growing Cells in a New Dimension: 3D Culture and Beyond - T82

Friday 9th January 2015

10:15 - 11:00

Location : Palmer, 109

Speakers

  1. Stefan Przyborski - Durham University

Culturing mammalian cells in the laboratory is a common technique used in basic research, drug development, and disease modelling. However, these methods are not without their limitations. New technologies have been developed to provide a 3D culture environment for better growth, differentiation and function of cells. This presentation will take you on a journey, from the research discoveries that produced these novel cell culture systems in the laboratory to their application in zero-g experiments on the International Space Station.

Yes We Can! - W104

Friday 9th January 2015

10:30 - 12:00

Location : HumSS, 128

Speakers

  1. Phil Bunyan - ASE Health & Safety Group

Practical activities that are NOT banned! Some reflections on 50+ years of the ASE's Health & Safety Group (formerly the Safeguards Committe) with a selection of demonstrations about what we can do and the stories behind them.

Maths and Science Link through Diagrams - W38

Friday 9th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Henley, G04

Speakers

  1. Lucy Sayce-Brown - Reading Borough Council
  2. John Oversby - University of Reading

Lucy, a maths educator, and John, a sciences educator, show in their interactive workshop how sciences and mathematics complement each other through diagrams, on which they have been researching together. Diagrams in problem-solving in quantitative work and diagrams in visualising complex data are but two of the contexts they will use. An important outcome is to show how the two disciplines complement each other in an unusual and innovative way.

The Value of a Name - T83

  1. Neil Herrington - Gaia's Company
  2. Marcus Grace - University of Southampton

This session considers the findings of a study which examined the ability of participants to identify organisms and the way in which this impacted upon their perception of the conservation value of that organism. The study used Q methodology, an innovative technique for the exploration of subjectivities.
