The Association for Science Education

ASE Annual Conference 2015 - University of Reading

New Microscale Chemistry - International schools continue to teach the UK - U08

Wednesday 7th January 2015

12:00 - 13:00

Location : Palmer, 102

Speakers

  1. Bob Worley - CLEAPSS

Practical procedures for pupils using conventional equipment are often time-consuming and left out of teaching, consequently lowering pupil expectations of secondary school science. Small-scale chemistry is quick, saves on chemicals and offers variety in presentation. The course covers indicators, precipitation, salt preparation, reaction kinetics, iron/sulphur reactions, working with toxic gases and carrying out small-scale vigorous reactions.

Reduced Scale Science: A New Way to Improve Practical Work (Repeated) - T06

Thursday 8th January 2015

Better Practicals, Better Learning: Improve your Skills (Hands-On!) (Repeated) - D01

Thursday 8th January 2015

11:00 - 13:00

Location : AMS, Lab G11

Speakers

  1. Matt Endean - CLEAPSS
  2. Harriet Truscott - Science and Plants for Schools (SAPS)

A chance to get hands-on and try out new and interesting practical activities covering Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Many of these are based on the reduced scale principle. Also you can make your own equipment which you get to take back to school with you.
