Scientists of the Future
Well, you could say of the now!
Today marked day three of our fantastic Science Ambassador training for Y5 children across Redcar and Cleveland. Kindly funded by Sirius Minerals it was delivered by the ever energetic Lorraine and Jenny from the Ogden Trust based at Durham University. The 22 schools that attended over the three days have all given amazing feedback and the children have learned about some key science concepts, some activities they can do with other pupils in schools and worked hard on their presentation skills to get complex ideas across. We will definitely look to run this again in the future because the quality of the experience and the feedback from schools has been exemplary. As often happens we were also helped by the brilliant STEM Ambassadors from Hillsview Academy next door. Their support for work with primary children over the past six months has been fantastic CPD and confidence building for them and also provided brilliant role models and support for the primary children.
