Arbour project - save the planet - T55

Friday 6th January 2017

Location : Palmer, 101

Encouraging students to gather seeds in the Autumn and grow trees and shrubs from those seeds is a kind of magic. Watching the tree grow in school with graphs of height, leaves, etc builds on the concept of ownership. The tree also requires a responsible person to look after it during the summer break from school; planting in summer at term end will not promote survival. Keeping it over the summer at home with parent help continues the educational process of building responsibility. During the following Autumn term when the trees come back lots of comparisons and plans can be made for planting out in the proper winter season. Planting with permission in a hedge row or along a canal bank will extend that ownership to hopefully in future look more favourably at the environment as part of it is theirs.

Speakers

  1. Imperial College London

Infertility affects 1 in 6 couples, with ~18,000 babies conceived each year in the UK through fertility treatment. The discovery of the novel hormone kisspeptin has furthered our understanding of the control of the Hypothalamo-Pituitary-Gonadal axis. Research has shown that there may be a role for kisspeptin in treating fertility disorders that is safer and more effective than current treatments.

CANCELLED: New biology�new practicals REPEATED - T65

Friday 6th January 2017

10:00 - 11:00

Location : -, -

Speakers

  1. 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".
