Friday 9th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Henley, 102

Speakers

  1. Alex Holmes - Assessment Editor (Smart Science), PhD in assessment in science and teacher

How is your department measuring progress for your KS3 students in light of the new curriculum? How do you show that your KS3 students have a secure understanding of scientific knowledge and can work scientifically? This practical workshop will look at assessment models for demonstrating measurable progress. Drawing on research, classroom practice and the flexible assessment model from Smart Science, you will leave with resources and enthusiasm to make a significant difference to assessment and working scientifically.

Preservation of Fish Using Natural Crude Extracts - Spices - W57

Friday 9th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : AMS, Lab G6

Speakers

  1. Dr Adesola Osibona - University of Lagos
  2. DR BEATRICE OLUBUNMI ONAFOWOKAN - ST AUGUSTINE COLLEGE, AKOKA, LAGOS. NIGERIA

Effect of ethanol extracts of spices; red pepper, black pepper, African nutmeg and ginger on matured larvae of Dermestes maculate Deeger exposed to four concentrations (10g, 15g, 20g, 25g) for 20days was determined. Mortality was monitored for seven days. Piper nigrum gave the highest mortality of 100% at two concentrations at the end of five days. The study showed that spices are effective in preservation and sustaining the protein level of smoked fish.
