STEM Learning CPD: Expedition Iceland (Northern lights, engineering and wonders of Iceland) – STEM study visit!
Study visits to sites of STEM interest are organised to complement contemporary science. This STEM study visit to Iceland aims to enhance subject knowledge and understanding about applications of science and involves working with experts in the field. It will also be useful for identifying Iceland as a potential site for school visits.
“It is the most enjoyable, most informative, most useful course that I have ever been on!” (Participant, February 2017)
“Visiting places where science is being actively used is invaluable for teaching; this allows us to pre-empt any comments like ‘why do we need to know this?’ by linking the theoretical science in the laboratory to the application in society.” (Participant, February 2017)
This expedition has been designed to give participants the opportunity to experience an area of the natural world which has recently been at the centre of STEM relevant stories. From earthquakes to Mars training, Iceland is a destination that can bring STEM subjects to life in the classroom!
The main expedition area will be in the South Central area of Iceland, an area that is characterised by glaciers, thermal springs, volcanic ash fields and vast mountains.
