You are invited to bring a researcher into your classroom to talk to your students about the research they do, and to answer questions related to the topic they are studying as part of the A Level or GCSE curriculum in the classroom.
This is a new initiative to enhance your lessons and illustrate in a real way “how science works” .
We have a number of researchers you can contact directly by e-mail to arrange a SKYPE link of 15 – 20 minutes. Your students should be studying a relevant topic and have their questions prepared in advance of the link.
Once the link is made, the researcher will introduce themselves and say a little bit about their work. Then the students will have an opportunity to ask their questions.
Please talk in advance to your school IT technicians and get advice about setting up a link, then e-mail the researcher to set up a time and date. You can also e-mail Lynne Long if you encounter any difficulties with setting this up.
Details of the researchers happy to be involved, including their e-mail addresses, can be found by clicking on the pictures below:
