Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 11:00

Location : HumSS, 128

The Bricks 4 Kidz pre-school curriculum is a source for meaningful literacy/science lessons. Take the letter X... In the Bricks 4 Kidz pre-school curriculum, letter X is presented through models built out of LEGO: a xylophone model for upper case X; and an X-ray model for lower case X.

Synergy Space Mission Control - W82

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 12:00

Location : Palmer, 101

Speakers

  1. Sotira Trifourki - Artemis Space

Synergy Space Mission Control is an Online Lab and Virtual Learning Environment which allows participants to design and upload proposed space experiments to carry these out on our Lunar, Interplanetary and Earth monitoring missions. The portal provides user access to a wide programme of space missions, democratizing space by enabling students and educators to participate in the exploration and the development of space. Users can select a space mission from our database, create your own experiments to upload to the spacecraft, design and build payloads to add to existing missions, request data, imagery and near-time video, book observation time on the Space Telescopes, and upload tasks to the Tesla Lunar Rover.

iPad for Science - BC17

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 12:00

Location : Booked course, pre-registration required. Confirmed upon booking.

Speakers

  1. Jon Scott - Stormfront

A hands-on workshop looking at ways in which iPad may be employed as a powerful tool the teaching laboratory. The activities will give delegates first hand experience of putting together a practical report using a range of different media including data collection, graphical analysis, audio and video recordings, and several different types of animation. We shall also look at how reports may be shared and marked electronically and some options for integrating iPad into a school's existing network.

Embedding Practical Solutions for Creative Outdoor Learning in the New Curriculum - T140

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Henley, 101

Speakers

  1. Dr Paul Davies - Institute of Education, University of London
  2. Ruth Amos - Institute of Education, University of London

The new science curriculum presents exciting possibilities to engage students in learning science outside of the classroom, especially through both an inquiry focus and within the 'Working Scientifically' strand. However, making the best use of these opportunities can be challenging. Drawing on work we have done with student teachers, we will consider why learning outside the classroom is important and present strategies, with resources to take away, which support this in a range of settings in and around schools.

Measuring Planck's Constant - T141

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : HumSS, 127

Speakers

  1. Dr. Damian Pope - Perimeter Institute
  2. Kevin Donkers - Perimeter Institute

Come explore Measuring Planck's Constant, a classroom resource designed by educators in collaboration with Perimeter Institute researchers to introduce students to the basis of quantum mechanics, based on Planck's theory that energy was not continuous. Using light emitting diodes (LED's), this hands-on lab activity is a neat way to accurately measure that fundamental value of nature, Planck's constant. Perimeter's Measuring Planck's Constant lab has direct connections to the A-level and GCSE Specifications.

Quick and Fun Ideas to Engage Pupils - D09

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : AMS, Lab G6

How can you teach biological concepts using play pit balls and link art and chemistry? Join members of the Surrey and Sussex region to discover some simple, engaging practicals and fun modelling activities - all achieved at minimal cost and suitable for a wide age range.

Action Research Posters: The Impact on Teachers and Learners - W87

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Henley, G03

Speakers

  1. Research Specialist Group - ASE

Many teachers now undertake Action Research as part of their professional development. Action Research as an indicator of their professionalism. This coordinated poster session of completed work, or work in progress, will demonstrate topics that can be explored, methods that can be used, and significant outcomes that affect the researcher's classroom, and potentially other delegates, too. After a short introduction, you will be free to engage in deep conversation with the poster producers, and meet some members of the ASE Research Specialist Group, on hand to give advice and support.

Practical Cross-Phase Activities - W89

Saturday 10th January 2015

11:00 - 12:00

Location : Palmer, 105

Speakers

  1. Martin Wesley - Sphere Science

Using children from one age group to help teach practical science to a younger age group is a tried and tested strategy. It enables plenty of practical work to take place safely, and allows the older children to consolidate their own knowledge and understanding. These activities also support the 'working scientifically' aspect of the new Primary Curriculum.

The New SHAP A-level Course - T142

Saturday 10th January 2015

11:00 - 12:00

Location : Carrington, 101

Speakers

  1. Elizabeth Swinbank - University of York Science Education Group
  2. Hovan Catchatoor - Reigate College

The successful and well-established context-led Salters Horners Advanced Physics course has been updated to match the new 2015 Edexcel/Pearson specification. There are new activities to develop practical skills, increased emphasis on maths, and the contexts have been enhanced with updated information. Existing SHAP teachers: come and see what's new. Everyone else: find out how SHAP can benefit your students, meet experienced SHAP teachers and find out what's involved in implementing the course.
