DNA Fingerprinting and Forensic Blood Typing (Repeated) - W85

Friday 9th January 2015

14:30 - 15:45

Location : Exhibition Marquee, A110

Speakers

  1. Brian Ell Ph.D. - Edvotek
  2. Timstar

Explore genetic diversity using forensic science! Your students become crime scene investigators as they analyze biological evidence using DNA fingerprinting, a technique that identifies people via genetic differences. Gel electrophoresis is used to create DNA fingerprints from crime scene and suspect samples. A match between samples suggests which suspect committed the crime.

Working Scientifically: Have We Got the Formula Right? - T117

Friday 9th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Henley, G11

Speakers

  1. Dr Lynne Bianchi - University of Manchester
  2. Joelle Halliday - Sheffield Hallam University

Join us for some open debate about whether the new curriculum really allows children to develop as contemporary young scientists. We will reflect on the outcomes of a school-based project in Stockport where primary teachers worked alongside research scientists and engineers to explore how children could be encouraged to work more authentically as scientists. We would like to discuss our findings with you, gain different perspectives on this topic and consider implications for teaching and learning.

Think Universe: All is One. Primary and Secondary Core Science - T118

Friday 9th January 2015

15:00 - 17:00

Location : HumSS, 27 LT

Speakers

  1. Dr Francisco Diego - University College London
  2. Shirin Sheikh-Bahai

Come to this lecture/workshop and explore new paths in teaching fundamental science at all levels, primary and secondary. See how challenging concepts like particle physics and atomic structure have been delivered successfully to year 5 and 6 pupils. Learn about the amazing results of the Open Investigatory Practical Work, based on free observation, small group discussion and independent, creative thinking. Be part of our practical classroom equipped with microscopes, atomic and molecular models and recreate the cosmic timeline that starts at the distant origin of fundamental building blocks, followed by long processes of assembly that have produced the Universe that we are part of. We will show how your school could participate in this ambitious project, initially supported by the Royal Society.

If It Doesn�t Work, It�s Physics - T116

Friday 9th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : AMS, Lab G9

Speakers

  1. Geoff Auty

Practical work in physics is often regarded as difficult. Should we avoid demonstrations or class practical work for fear of failure? This session will show over a dozen effective practical items from various areas of physics. Many have been described in the ASE�s School Science Review (SSR). This follows similar sessions at recent ASE conferences but with many different topics, including some items which are often regarded as difficult

Unforgettable Lessons: A New Breed of Curriculum Materials from ENGAGE - T120

Friday 9th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Chemistry, LT G

Speakers

  1. Tony Sherborne - Centre for Science Education

The ENGAGE project picks up where upd8 left off. This time it�s more than science-in-context materials. There�s a full CPD programme with workshops, online courses and projects with scientists. Come to the launch reception and join the new community of science teachers who inspire and educate with socio-scientific issues.

Using Dramatic Science to Enrich Learning - W65

Friday 9th January 2015

15:00 - 16:00

Location : Henley, G14

Speakers

  1. Deb McGregor - Oxford Brookes University
  2. Wendy Precious - Entrust

This �bodies-on� session will share tried and tested drama strategies that support eliciting children�s ideas, developing imaginative thinking, broadening understanding of scientific concepts and working scientifically. The focus of the session will be on the science within the reviewed curriculum. All outcomes were stimulated through research projects funded by the Primary Science Teaching Trust.
