It’s been a busy couple of weeks for the Talk Science team with lots of exciting stuff happening. We have been on a mini UK tour working with the Museums Libraries and Archives council delivering our training course with Science ITT students and museum educators.
New resources coming soon….
We have been filming with the Science Museum in house comedy team Punk Science to create short films for you to use in the classroom. The Punk Science team bring a hilarious twist to difficult to understand science concepts and ideas while making the science crystal clear for your students. So if you have ever wondered how two men, some bungee chord and a balaclava can demonstrate the end of the universe these films will be just your cup of tea. You can get a little taster of what they’re about on our YouTube Channel.
Punk Science are the minds behind the best selling children’s science book Do Try This at Home.
In addition to the films, Punk Science will also be sharing their top tips for teachers who want to ‘Punk’ their lessons. The films will start appearing on our site from July onwards.
