Talk Science full day teachers' course

Inspire your students to connect with the science that shapes their lives with our one day Talk Science course.

This thought-provoking CPD course for KS3 and KS4 teachers will give you the chance to explore creative approaches for making curriculum science relevant to all your students, by connecting it with their own experiences, interests and future lives.

‘The course gave me lots of ideas, and was delivered in a fun and interesting way. It has inspired me to run more discussion lessons in the future.’ KS4 teacher, York

On the Talk Science course you will:

  • use Mystery Boxes, a hands-on activity exploring how science works
  • plan stimulating learning activities using Hook, Inform, Enable, Extend
  • learn how to use the See, Link, Wonder facilitation process both inside and outside the classroom
  • have the opportunity to embed these techniques into lessons for your students.

Lunch and refreshments are provided and you will receive ready-to-use classroom resources such as films and other materials to take away.

The course is delivered by the Science Museum’s experienced training team.
