Gopher Science Lab: Grants available!
Another round of small grants is now open to UK schools to enable them to run a Gopher Science Lab event in their school.
Two types of grants are available, one for a Lab day only and another for a Lab day followed by a teacher led twilight CPD training session for teachers from other schools to share experience gained during the school’s own lab day.
This project supports transition from primary to secondary school with peer to peer learning across age groups. Secondary students learn how to deliver the range of Gopher Science Lab activities to primary pupils. During this process the secondary students develop their skills in communication, innovation and increase their self-confidence.
Later the primary pupils who attended the Gopher Science Lab day are encouraged to deliver their own training to pupils in their class or from younger year groups, so they too can develop their understanding and communication skills, with supervision from their teacher. This gives all participating students ownership of their learning and helps them gain confidence.
Deadline: 31st March 2016.
