Making Materials Matter (159)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Find out about Materials Science; what it is and where you find it in your science teaching as well as enrichment activities you can use developed through Making Materials Matter (MMM).

MMM is a collaborative project with the Materials Science departments from The Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Sheffield and Imperial College London, supported by The Ironmongers' Company. It is informed by current research including Science Capital research and aims to raise students' aspirations and increase awareness of Materials Science. We work with Yr8 students and their Teachers on an extended Materials Science research project offering continued support and school visits from our student ambassadors. The project concludes with the students presenting their research at The University of Oxford.
Within this session we will also discuss the continuation of the project as we aim to offer sustained outreach; engaging with the students each year. All the resources developed will be available. We welcome discussion and ideas to increase the impact of the project including the use of MMM resources in your schools.

This session is suitable for all teachers of KS3/4 science and may be of particular interest to those with responsibilities for science enrichment activities linked to the current curriculum.
