CANCELLED - Low Budget but Fantastic Forensics - BC20

Saturday 10th January 2015

00:00 - 10:30

Speakers

  1. Elena Setterfield

A hands-on crime scene workshop that stimulates student interest in school science, but at a low cost to set up. Presented by a teacher experienced in practical forensics for exam courses, forensic events and school project work. (A published author of Forensic material too!) A lively and professionally fulfilling 2 hours of blood spatter, trace evidence, hair and fibre analysis, latent prints, imprints and crime scene analysis. Comprehensive forensic work booklet provided. Early booking recommended for this highly evaluated course.

CANCELLED - Smart Science Initiative -

Saturday 10th January 2015

00:00 - 10:30

Speakers

  1. Wan Ng - University of New South Wales

This session presents the design and development of a model of partnership for a technology-based initiative that seeks to promote inquiry-based science learning for year 9 and 10 students. The federally funded Australian initiative, developed as gamified modules on an elearning adaptive platform, aims to enthuse and engage the students in studying more science at senior levels. Preliminary results of the project will be presented at the conference.

CANCELLED - Teaching about Energy and Climate Change -

Saturday 10th January 2015

00:00 - 10:30

Speakers

  1. Keith Ross - ATSE

Physicists (and the national curriculum) now talk about energy stores and transfers, with electricity, light and sound becoming simply ways of transferring energy from one store to another. Can this approach also be used in teaching chemistry and biology? This talk takes a look at the way the word energy is used in everyday language and links it with the idea of energy dissipation and conservation. Examples will be taken from topics related to the understanding of climate change.

CANCELLED - Chemical Magic - T58

Saturday 10th January 2015

00:00 - 10:30

Reactions and principles which might feature in your lessons. A visual presentation, and a kaleidoscope of chemical reactions, all presented in a light-hearted manner. A melange of observations, sometimes old, maybe something blue (a quick flash perhaps) etc pass before the eyes. Results predictable or unexpected create an atmosphere of magic to the uninitiated but to those in the know - it�s just chemistry, a collection of elements which compounded together make us and our world.

Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology for 2015 - T129

Saturday 10th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : Henley, G14

Speakers

  1. Anne Scott - University of York Science Education Group

Come along and find out what the Salters-Nuffield Advanced Biology course will look like for 2015. You will find out what changes there are to the content and how the new practical skills requirements have been integrated into the course. You will have an opportunity to see samples of the new resources.

Running a Science Journal Club - W77

Saturday 10th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : Palmer, 106

Speakers

  1. Dr Sarah Pannell - ASE Region SE

Teachers often encourage their students to 'read around' the subject to broaden their understanding and improve their scientific knowledge, but do the students know how to do this? In this session, we will explore how an academic Journal Club model can be used to encourage A-level students to develop broader scientific literacy, and how students are able to access challenging scientific articles. Suggestions of articles that can be used to start your own Journal Club will be provided.

Designing Action Research - W80

Saturday 10th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : Palmer, 104

Speakers

  1. Deb McGregor - Oxford Brookes University

There are different ways to approach Action Research. It is commonly thought of as an individual evaluating the impact of their changed practice. It can also be conceptualised as a collective endeavour. This workshop describes different ways of designing action research and discusses the key characteristics of a rigorous inquiry.

Making the most of Scientist in the Classroom - T133

Saturday 10th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : Henley, G04

Speakers

  1. Charlotte Thorley - Queen Mary University of London

How do we make the most of opportunities to have scientists in our classrooms? What do the scientists think about coming into schools? This session presents the preliminary findings of a study that has examined this relationship closely, and provides an opportunity for you to have your say!

Triple Science for Most? - T130

Saturday 10th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : AMS, 135 LT

Speakers

  1. Jasper Green - Mossbourne Community Academy

Triple science GCSE has historically been reserved for 'elite' students in top sets. In 2014 just 20 % of students in English schools sat GCSEs in biology, chemistry and physics. Here we evaluate the success of a new program in an inner London Academy where over 85% of students study triple science. We review attitudes of teachers and students towards the 'triple science for most' approach and compare the attainment of groups using our first set of results. Finally, to see which students, if any, benefited from studying triple science, we compare what students would have achieved in double science to their actual attainment and consider how this impacts on whole school performance measures.

Data Logging and more with iPads - W78

Saturday 10th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : AMS, G8

Speakers

  1. Barry Hawkins - Data Harvest

Use Apple iPads, WiFi computers and data loggers to create collaborative learning groups. Bring your own iPad or WiFi enable PC with the Easysense App loaded. A workshop to explore the advantages and problems of tablet data logging. We believe there are more advantages and curriculum developments when using the iPad, but here is chance to test flight in an experimental class.
