Location : To be confirmed

Speakers

  1. Mary Philpott - CLEAPSS

Biology is advancing very rapidly and the new understanding is increasingly seen in everyday life. Each iteration of GCSE or A level therefore includes new aspects of molecular biology, physiology and ecology, to prompt students to learn the theory.However, students often find the new material difficult to grasp because it is so abstract. This workshop gives ideas for simple hands-on practicals that help students to understand the experimental basis for the modern Biology. As the practicals are investigative, the students can also make some discoveries of their own!!!After all, isn't the 21st Century the �Age of Biology�.
