Standing on the Shoulders of Giants FULL
Limited Capacity full

A workshop for teachers and schools to develop a methodology for using both famous and contemporary scientists in their science curriculum. We will share research-informed and trialled strategies of how to use scientists to model how to work scientifically. Delegates will take away resources which will provide a structure for an overall whole-school approach to teaching about scientists which demonstrates how scientific ideas have developed through time. In addition to this a number of practical activities will be provided which mimic how specific famous scientists worked. Activities are taken from the new PSTT resource, “Standing on the Shoulders of Giants”.
