Training Session: Nuclear Physics Resources - 15 Jan - University of Glasgow - 4-6pm
In conjunction with Researchers from the School of Physics and Astronomy at Glasgow University this event this event will launch new Physics lending kits intended for use with senior phase secondary school pupils. Attendees will learn about the kits and how to use them in the classroom and it is intended that Ambassadors will offer future support to schools which borrow the kits.
Training Session : delivering STEM activities to a small family audience - 16 Jan - University of Glasgow - 5.15-6.45pm
For the last few months, STEM Ambassador Michael MacLennan, has been involved with a project that requires Ambassadors to help deliver science experiments, as part of an activity that gets children and parents working together to prepare a family meal.
Michael is delighted to offer a training session to STEM Ambassadors to enable them to find out more about the project and to try out the experiments that he delivered to families. Michael will also talk about his experiences in the schools, offering tips and techniques in engaging a family audience with limited exposure to STEM.
East Ayrshire Teacher/Ambassador Networking Session : 23 Jan - 3.30-4.45pm
We are delivering an information session on the use of the STEM Ambassador digital platform for teachers to find out more about STEM Ambassadors and how they can engage with young people inside and out of the classroom.
To maximise the effectiveness of this event, we would like to invite STEM Ambassadors to come along and meet with the teachers, and to have a chat and discuss where you can provide help in their classroom. We are keen for Ambassadors to do this in the form of a mini speed networking session so they everyone gets the opportunity to meet each other.
