Visual Science: Research into Diagram Use in Science - T148

Saturday 10th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, G14

Speakers

  1. David Marsh - University of Oxford

This presentation will present the outcomes of a project which looked at how adults and children look at diagrams and also how to more effectively construct science diagrams in teaching practice. The methodology is for an easily reproducible method for teachers who wish to look at tracking eye movement and sharing the discoveries of the project so far. The presentation also includes a literature review looking at current international research on science diagrams and their use in science education.

Location : Chemistry, Lab G

Visit the demonstration ESTA Primary Workshop, laid out for you to see and sample a wide range of Earth science-related activities. These include: sorting minerals; rock identification at different levels with the ESTA kit of 15 rocks; testing rock porosity; making your own well; the formation of fossils; their place in the evidence of evolution.

Looking into the Past to Understand Evolution and Future Implications for Biodiversity - T152

Saturday 10th January 2015

11:30 - 12:30

Location : Henley, G15

Speakers

  1. Dr Christopher Venditti - School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading

The combination of phylogenetic trees, which describe how species are related to each other, and characteristics of those species, provides a window through which it is possible to view historical evolutionary processes, giving us an understanding of how biodiversity has accumulated through time. Can we use this information to predict which species are evolutionarily primed to be resilient to anthropomorphic factors such as climate change, introduction of alien species and deforestation, which threaten current biodiversity?
