Event Description
Primary science should inspire pupils and foster their natural curiosity. Harnessing this curiosity involves providing opportunities for pupils to ask questions, explore materials and the environment, observe, test things out and find answers to questions. Exploring what it means to be a scientist, will not only engage and excite pupils but also develop essential working scientifically skills. This course is for teachers and subject leaders who are looking to inspire future scientists and develop life-long learning skills.
