'Science GCSEs: Exploring different models of organisation and timetabling'

Following last year’s lively Talking Science debate about the illusion of choice in studying the sciences at GCSE, we now consider the logistical challenges facing schools in delivering comprehensive science provision. 

Join our Chair Professor David Read and hosts the Association for Science Education, Royal Society, Royal Society of Biology, Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Physics for lively and topical debate, followed by wine, nibbles and networking.
