The Science of Materials Summer School is a 3-day residential course which gives chemistry teachers access to cutting edge materials science research which they can use in their teaching. Held at Sheffield University, in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the course gives teachers exclusive access to their laboratories and equipment, and offers them the chance to learn from researchers.
The course is made up of
- Lectures and seminars providing information about the latest advances in materials science
- Practical experiments which can be taken away and used in school. These simple experiments present existing material as materials science and also offer opportunities for extension material for the more able pupils
- Discussions focusing on career opportunities in materials science
Who should attend?
The event is aimed at chemistry and science teachers who want to learn more about the latest advances in materials science and how these can be used in their day to day teaching.
