Summary

 

“Unsafe and its always the same”, is something often said about chemistry practicals, this course will disprove this though a diverse range of safe, exciting and effective practicals. Through tailored sessions designed for technicians to be able to support teachers and create impactful science lessons, we will explore chemistry practical work with a strong emphasis on health and safety and engagement.

The course has been developed on five main strands to make sure its relevant to technicians, these five strands include, where to source the equipment, how to set it up, how the practical runs in the classroom, scientific background to the practical and health and safety.

The content has been designed to fulfil the chemistry curriculum for 11-19 students and will include topics that will inspire pupils to attain in their chemistry qualifications. We will go out with a bang in inspiring demonstrations, get stuck up with polymers, go to pieces with diffusion and get up close and personal with unusual and dangerous chemicals. For more information on the content and how they will support you and others please download this document.

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
