Our workshops are run at no cost to schools or participants. You can also contact your local Physics Network Coordinator to request a workshop on a topic of your choice, or to host a regional session.
Scarborough University Technical College
7 November 2018
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Book your place on TalkPhysics
This event is a FREE workshop for any teachers of Science in the Scarborough area.
This session will focus on developing teacher confidence with teaching Electricity topics – at KS3, KS4 and KS5.
There will be an opportunity to discuss and try electricity practicals – including some tips for getting electricity practicals to actually work, and some different approaches to circuit building to try with your students.
This workshop is the first of a series of workshops throughout the year covering topics that have been requested – Electricity, Forces, Energy (stores and transfers), Electromagnetism etc.
This workshop will run as a ‘drop-in’ session from 4pm, with the main workshop taking place between 4.30-5.30 – allowing a ‘soft start’ as people arrive from 4pm (plenty of things to look at and do from 4.00-4.30), with the main session finishing at 5.30pm and activities/discussion continuing until 6pm for those who are able to stay.
Lectures, masterclasses, workshops and more. All teachers of physics, technicians and trainees welcome.
This popular day for everyone teaching physics is a mix of practical workshops, inspiring talks and congenial networking. Sessions concentrate on ideas to use in your labs and classrooms.
Workshops planned for the day are as follows:
A. What’s new about Energy? (Dan Hannard)
B: Electricity for beginners (Daisy Fox/Sasa Metcalfe)
C. Free body force diagrams from KS3-KS5 (Ruth Wiltsher)
D.Electromagnetism and building novel motors (Richard Bonella)
E. Maths for Physics (Rachel Hartley)
F.Teaching ideas for Seismic Waves (Caroline Neuberg)
Please choose 2 workshops that you would like to attend on the booking page.

Making something abstract concrete is a useful tool for those teaching physics. Cloud chambers allow students to see the paths that ionising radiation has travelled. In this workshop you get to make a take away a cloud chamber big enough for a group of people to see into. You'll also get ideas for getting the most out of your dry ice.
