Forces and Motion

Upton Hall School, FCJ, Birkenhead
CH49 6LJ

21 June 2017
1.30pm - 3.30pm

Book your place via TalkPhysics

EVENT FOCUS

We will look at techniques and teaching tools that will get students thinking about what forces do and how to identify the forces in a given situation. The workshop will cover Newton’s Laws of motion, how they relate to one another and how to use them to analyse physical scenarios. We’ll also look at measuring motion and the GCSE required practical activity, and include a range of experiments to enhance your teaching.

This session is open to all teachers of science but would appeal to teachers teaching outside their specialism and early career teachers
