Confirmed speakers - more to come

Tracey Tyrell - EXPLORE, ENGAGE, EXTEND (Primary phase teachers)

Speaking about the strategies from her book, Tracy Tyrrell supports teachers to elicit children’s knowledge and understanding in science and use this to inform the planning of new learning experiences.

Teachers from the trial project say:

“Explore, Engage, Extend is excellent assessment for learning.”

“The children are more engaged and motivated and make good progress.”

“Science in my classroom is now much more child-led.”

Alison Watts - Regional Development Lead for STEM Learning (Secondary phase teachers)

Alison will share with you a range of practical strategies for improving your physics lessons - engaging learners by making students think. A series of short engaging activities linked to physics which are designed to stimulate discussion and prompt questions.

University of Derby - Forensic Science (primary phase teachers)

This workshop looks at the application of forensic science as a means of teaching science in the primary classroom, using everyday objects.  An emphasis will be on developing scientific skills by performing scientific and technical analysis on evidence collected from a 'crime scene'.  

NFU - Exciting primary science (primary phase teachers)

Presenting STEM learning within the context of engaging, real life problems gives children a sense of the purpose and direction of their learning, consequently improving their motivation and perseverance when tackling tricky topics. As former primary school teachers, we understand the challenges faced by the profession and we have designed our resources with three main goals in mind: to save teachers time and reduce workload; to spark learners’ passion and enthusiasm for STEM subjects and to convey important messages about food and nutrition through a cross-curricular, project-based approach.

In this exciting practical session, we’ll be throwing elements of Ready Steady Cook, The Apprentice and Countryfile into a blender to introduce our cross-curricular project schemes that use real life problems as engaging contexts for learning. Expect a session of ideas for exciting practical activities and a free scheme of teaching and learning resources that will allow you to infuse your wider curriculum with engaging STEM learning opportunities.
