RCUK Cutting Edge Science CPD Opportunity

Bringing Cutting Edge Research into the Classroom to support the teaching of STEM subjects at GCSE and A Level

Cutting Edge Science courses are a great way to engage students in the classroom as well as improve teacher’s subject knowledge in areas of research linked to the curriculum.

We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with Watford Grammar School for Boys and Dr Challoner’s Grammar School to bring Cutting Edge Science to you.

Based in the new, superbly equipped STEM centre at Watford Boys Grammar, these courses will provide an opportunity for you to bring these exciting science subjects into your classroom. We start the afternoon with an engaging talk from Mark Langley, UCL (Science Capital) before splitting into the subject area you choose.

Try out practical activities and plan lessons to support the teaching and learning of these areas in the context of real world science.

• Engage with active and inspiring teaching approaches and learning activities.

• Meet scientists working in cutting edge research relevant to the science curriculum.
