ASE Annual Conference 2015 - University of Reading

IOP - Teaching the Electromagnetic Spectrum - W94

Saturday 10th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : AMS, Lab G4

Speakers

  1. Sue McGrath - Institute of Physics

Explore ideas and approaches for teaching this sometimes tricky topic

From Sc1 to Working Scientifically - W96

Saturday 10th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Palmer, G06

Speakers

  1. Jane Turner - PSQM
  2. Liz Lawrence - London Borough of Barking and Dagenham

How different is working scientifically from what I already do? What changes will I need to make? How can I support pupils and colleagues in moving towards working scientifically? This workshop, based around It's not fair: or is it? will use discussion and practical activities to help you to answer these (and other) questions.

Making Things Fly - BC18

Saturday 10th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

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

Speakers

  1. David Ward - Greater Manchester STEM Centre

We'd like to share our work with primary and secondary colleagues on 'making things fly'. We'll provide you with a work book of templates and in the session take participants through the 'lost art of paper planes'. We have a range of simple items that fly that could form the basis of work on forces or for 'after school clubs'. The majority of our ideas use 80g or 160g paper/card. We'll spend some time doing rockets and 'debate' whether they actually fly!

Primary Data Logging - W98

Saturday 10th January 2015

14:30 - 15:30

Location : AMS, G8

Speakers

  1. Barbara Higginbotham - Data Harvest

Which material is best for curtains? Is the length of day the same all the year round? Simple but versatile, Vu supports science activities by providing children with simple measurements for evidence. We will be using Pictograms, Bar charts and Line graphs. If you have your own iPad or WiFi laptop to use, install the easy sense app and share the data.

Primary Science Forum - T163

Saturday 10th January 2015

15:15 - 16:30

Location : Palmer, 109

Speakers

  1. The ASE Primary Science Committee

Working Scientifically at KS3 - D14

Saturday 10th January 2015

15:30 - 16:30

Location : HumSS, 124

Speakers

  1. Ed Walsh - Cornwall Learning

The new Programme of Study for Science at KS3 includes 'Working Scientifically' - a clearly defined set of inquiry skills that are required to be delivered throughout the course. Teachers will also want to be developing these skills in preparation for courses at KS4. This workshop will explore ways in which these skills can be effectively incorporated in planning and delivery, and used to engage students in understanding how scientific inquiry works. Sponsored by Collins Education.

Neuroprosthetics: From Homo Sapiens to Homo Mechanicus - T165

Saturday 10th January 2015

15:30 - 16:30

Location : Henley, G10

Speakers

  1. Dr Evangelos Devilopoulos - School of Systems Engineering, University of Reading

Thousands of patients live with spinal cord injury (SCI), macular degeneration or sensorineural hearing loss. While functional nerve regeneration is still far away from clinical application, despite many promising developments in animal models, neuroprosthetics is an emergent field which can offer immediate solutions to debilitating conditions associated with nerve damage. These technologies connect the human central and peripheral nervous systems to implantable electrodes which can stimulate precise groups of nerves, in order to restore functionality in specific organs.

Shaping the Future: From Nature to Nanotechnology - T164

Saturday 10th January 2015

15:30 - 16:30

Location : Henley, G15

Speakers

  1. Dr Adam Squires - School of Chemistry, Food and Pharmacy, University of Reading

Intricate 3D structures found throughoutnature, from shrews' eyes, butterflywings and sea urchins to mitochondriaand chloroplasts, can be used as mouldswithin nanotechnology. At Reading, weuse these natural structures as mouldsfor metal nanomaterials containing billionsof microscopic wires, giving electrodecoatings with thousand-fold surface areaincreases; this boosts power and reducesdevice size in applications from hybridcars to solar panels and rechargeablebatteries.
