10:00 - 11:00

Location : -, -

Speakers

  1. Revolution Education CPD

Three Act Science - A way of transforming science learning in the classroom This is a development of the work of Dan Meyer's 3 Act Maths. A way of delivering science that provokes curiosity as well as challenging their belief systems and misconceptions. Act 1 is a 'hook' that creates the curiosity - Something they cant explain, that doesn't make sense to them so they are forced to re-evaluate what they are thinking Act 2 is the explore as they think about what they have seen and try to make sense of it Act 3 is the reveal or wrap up that acts as a plenary , looks at links with other concepts and explores how their thinking has changed This will be a very practical and hands on session - You will also learn how to win bets for the rest of your life !

Frontier Science: Teenage kicks - puberty and health in medieval England - T119

Saturday 7th January 2017

10:00 - 11:00

Location : Henley Business School, G15

Speakers

  1. Department of Archaeology, SAGES, University of Reading

Adolescence spans a period of sexual maturation (puberty) and the physical and psychological transition to adulthood. Adverse conditions such as poor nutrition, exposure to pollutants, extreme physical exertion, psychological stress, or chronic illness can alter the tempo of puberty, delaying menarche in girls. Recent research at Reading devised a new method to trace puberty in human skeletal remains. Analysis of over 900 medieval teenagers revealed that, while children were entering the growth spurt as the same time as their modern peers, their lifestyles, exposure to infection and environment severely delayed the time it took to complete their maturation.
