Learning Outside the Classroom

Part of the Great Lesson Ideas series, this Teachers TV video looks at how secondary science topics can be taught away from the classroom. It shows at ideas for three great day visits.

These include:

• The Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, in Cornwall, to learn about satellites, space and communications.

• The National Space Centre in Leicester is worth the trip to inspire students to think about space and give them an immersive experience.

• Dale Fort Field Centre, on the Pembrokeshire coast, is a residential base for science study.

Local authority adviser Mary Muggridge shows how to support students away from home, possibly for the first time.
