Microscopy: Enriching and Extending the Primary Curriculum LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

This hands-on, interactive workshop will illustrate the use of microscopes within and beyond the science curriculum, developing extensive ideas generated in the primary sector. The overall aim is to use the microscope's power to engage and 'wow factor' to promote the exploration of everyday things in a different context, maximising the impact in STEM subjects and exploring how creative approaches can incorporate other disciplines including art and literacy. This enjoyable workshop shows the impact that microscopes have upon children's learning, their cross curricular benefits and their future in the classroom. The workshop will also introduce the Microscope Activity Kit, a free resource to primary schools developed by the Royal Microscopical Society and used by over 90,000 children nationally to support science learning, with ready-made activities, resources and worksheets.
