2019 Summer Teacher Workshop
Alongside the student programme, we also ran the first of this year’s Teacher Workshops to help support science classroom teaching at our participating schools. Sixteen teachers attended hands-on full-day lab sessions in Genetics/Biochemistry and Physics, as well as shorter sessions in sport and exercise Science, internals planning and seminars.
“Great to be able to network in Physics and Biology with a small group of teachers in similar situations. Excellent to gain some specific information regarding good websites and info sources.”
