See through science: using images to engage and inspire children to ask scientific questions LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

'See through science' is an exciting new resource, from the PSTT, which uses images to stimulate scientific thinking and discussion. This session will explain the theory behind the resource, including the importance of focused questioning and the power of using images, and the research that has been done to measure its effectiveness. We will present different ways schools can use it to develop thinking and discussion. Participants will get an opportunity to explore some of the images and support materials and discuss the types of questions they could use to develop their pupils' scientific thinking, vocabulary and discussion skills.
