Science in Your Local Area

Description

Discover how a science teacher took inspiration from his city's heritage to devise a scheme of work for Year 8 students.

Richard Faraday from Heaton Manor School in Newcastle-upon-Tyne uses the area's shipping industry and the river Tyne's geology to teach Key Stage 3 students. Projects are also based around famous scientists from the city.

The students are inspired by seeing how science is embedded in their own city, and teachers hope it will encourage them to consider a scientific career for themselves.
