Scientific methodology

The T level section on scientific methodology is a departure from the investigations students may have completed previously at GCSE level, involving simple tasks on a small scale. The emphasis here is firmly on an industrial or workplace focus on the methodology and includes problem solving and analysis plus client/customer considerations to the process. Some of these areas can be taught whilst looking at data students have generated and others will need to be approached in a theoretical manner and picked up on after the student has been on placement and can see the ideas in practice.  

 Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
