Year 7 & 8 Practical Experiment Showcase D16
Would you like hints and tips for curriculum focused practical work and advice from specialists on how to perform a range of science activities? All disciplines covered! Plus how can virtual enhancement augment and reinforce practical work?
ASE, in partnership with BESA (British Educational Suppliers Association) will be delivering an inspiring workshop aimed at Year 7 and 8 teachers and their science technicians. That is FREE to attend.
Focusing on the all-important practical work in the classroom, the experiments, which have been chosen by our Science Education 11-19 Committee and Science Laboratory Technicians Committee, in association with our Health and Safety Specialist Group, will be aimed to inspire and delight the students, so to foster a love of science, whilst giving teachers the confidence to perform the experiments safely.
Expert lab technicians will be on hand to answer questions, to show the experiments and to let you try your hand at them, whilst the suppliers will be there to give advice regarding equipment and chemicals with maybe cheeky little discounts especially for you!
To support practical work in schools, ASE and BESA are funding teachers to attend this workshop free. Just register for 'Free Entry Exhibition Only' ticket when you book at www.ase.org.uk/annual-conference and you can attend this workshop PLUS tour the scientific resources on offer in the Exhibition Marquee.

“I’ve changed my mind!” Supporting the development of children’s ideas W94
Children (and indeed adults, as we may well prove during the session) like to be right, and children’s progress with conceptual understanding in science is often hindered by an unwillingness to change their minds. The tendency to hold on to scientifically incorrect ideas, even when they have been shown otherwise, is very strong (Johnston, 2014).
This workshop will explore practical strategies for helping children be comfortable with the idea of being ‘wrong’, and to be confident to change their minds. It will suggest that teachers should be happy with children’s ideas sometimes being scientifically incorrect.
It will demonstrate how linking an idea with evidence enables children to propose a range of possible ideas that may or may not be correct, but have value because they are linked to a piece of established evidence. Working in this way also helps children manage uncertainty and recognise that science is not black and white, and cannot always explain everything.

Terrific Scientific is an ambitious campaign from the BBC. Our goal is to inspire primary school pupils to discover their inner scientist.
Currently, fewer than 15% of 10-14 year olds aspire to pursue a career as a scientist, leaving the UK with a potential skills shortage.
The BBC has partnered with leading universities to create a series of child-friendly nationwide scientific investigations. The data gathered is sent to the universities and feeds into real academic studies. Join us on a national journey of scientific discovery!
