Join the Royal Institution of Great Britain for CPD sessions with a focus on using practical demonstrations and experiments as part of everyday science teaching. The aim is to equip teachers with the skills and confidence to stimulate curiosity and encourage inquiry-led learning. The sessions focus on bringing science to life in the classroom and include the investigation of ideas, interactive demonstrations and presentation tips.
Join the Science Museum Group Academy team for an interactive online session exploring the key elements of engagement and how to use them to plan and develop engaging and inspiring experiences for your students. The team will explore the five key elements for creating engaging learning experiences – Hook, Inform, Enable, Extend and Reflect. You’ll have the opportunity to try out techniques for each element and discuss ideas to help you plan engaging and inspiring STEM experiences for your students in and beyond the classroom.
All you’ll need is a regular video call set-up and a willingness to have a go at the activities and share your ideas.
Have you ever been to a Star Party? That’s where you go out at night to look through telescopes, hang out with other astronomy fans, learn cool things about the universe, and have a great time doing it.
During the daytime in Hong Kong, it’s the middle of the night in Colorado in the United States. And, thanks to digital technology, you’ll be able to actually look through telescopes where the Mobile Earth + Space Observatory (MESO) are pointing at the night sky in Colorado. You’ll have the chance to look deep into space to explore our amazing cosmos. Not only that, in this dynamite 90-minute event, a team of scientists and educators will lead you through activities you’ll do in your own home; there’ll be an Q&A session, solar system animations, live science demonstrations, and much more.
The best part is that it is LIVE. What you will be seeing is literally what is happening half a world away. Actually, it’s light years better than that – it’s what is happening across our entire galaxy! Join this one-time-only Virtual Star Party!
