INSPIRE SCIENCE – Getting ‘Em Thinking and Chatting About Science!

Course Details

One of the best ways of helping pupils learn and understand science is to get them thinking and
talking about it using fun and simple science demos, experiments and ‘science tricks’ that they can do
themselves or the teacher can demonstrate in class. You can use such novel experiments to not only help
the pupils remember and understand the science they need to learn, but also give them practice in the
‘higher-order’ creative thinking skills as well, such as applying, analysing, problem solving, reasoning
and enquiry. So ‘Dr Mark’s’ lively (and entertaining!) day is full of his fun, novel and easy to deliver
hands-on science experiments, investigations and science tricks ideas, all designed to stimulate, enrich
and inspire the scientific mind of your pupils, and get them into the ‘higher order’ thinking and learning
mode effectively and naturally, almost without them realising they are even doing it. In other words, to
get them thinking and chatting about science!

The course will:

Give you an enjoyable day and a range of tried-and-tested science activities to take back to the class
that will inspire and engage the pupils about science.
Show how to effectively teach and illustrate science ‘theory’ with the use of practical, hands-on or
teacher-demonstrated activities.
Show a way of teaching science that is particularly effective for stimulating the ‘higher order’ creative
thinking, enquiry, problem solving and reasoning process skills in pupils of a wide range of ages and
abilities right across EYFS, Key Stage 1 and 2.
Show a range of engaging science activities from across the curriculum, with particular focus on the
often more difficult to teach ‘physical sciences’, including forces and motion, chemical reactions and
properties of materials.
Show how such activities can be used in a variety of ways from quick lesson starters to full length
lesson activities and even engaging homework.
Provide FREE site-licensed, printable digital teachers resources detailing all the activities covered on
the course and more...

specialises in using simple, fun and
novel ways of engaging both pupils
and teachers alike about science and
maths. Since 1997, ‘Dr Mark’ has
visited many hundreds of schools
with his novel and lively pupil shows,
hands-on pupil workshops and
teachers’ CPD/INSET sessions, and
continues to do so. He has produced
several innovative teachers’ and
pupils’ science and maths resources,
now used by thousands of teachers
across the UK and overseas. He is
recommended by a number of teacher
training colleges, and is a regular
invited speaker at numerous teachers’
conference events all over the UK,
including over ten years at the TES
