Hands on Science - at KS3

Description

Science Museum outreach educators Nora Maddock and Katie Arnott visit Werneth School near Manchester to put on a science communication workshop.

Nora and Katie start with a dynamic show for the whole of Year 7, before 30 students are selected to learn how to present and explain their own exciting scientific demonstrations.

The outreach team believes that communication is an important part of the KS3 science curriculum, and hope that it will aid students in developing a critical scientific awareness of the world around them.

Subject leader for science Nichola Budd describes how to make the most of such opportunities, including how to recreate the ideas displayed in the workshop using simple household props.
