This event is suitable for all teachers of science from teachers of Upper Primary through to the Advanced Higher Sciences. Part 2 is on Tuesday 23 November 2021.

During this 2-part session IOP Scotland Coach Allan Reid will lay out some of the key science behind climate change, how we know about it, and what we can do in the classroom to get some of these potentially complex ideas across to our students in a simple, fun, and engaging manner.

The sessions will explain how to use cheap and readily available materials to construct a variety of hands-on classroom activities, and participants are encouraged to bring their own materials and join in with the practical, although this should not preclude attendance if circumstances to do not permit as full instructions will be provided.

If you have any questions about the session or about the kit list, please email Allan Reid at [email protected].
