KS2 and KS3 Overlapping in Science – raising the level of challenge in KS3 practicals

Davison CE High School for Girls, Worthing
BN11 2JX

21 September 2017
3.30pm - 4.30pm

Book via TalkPhysics.

EVENT FOCUS

This session is an opportunity to try a range of physics-based activities at KS3 aiming to extend the level of challenge from Y7-Y9 (following the AQA KS3 curriculum).

St Peter's School
BH14 8UL

Request this workshop in 2017

EVENT FOCUS

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 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.
