Hunt for the Best Ever Science Lesson

Professor Mark Brake appeared today on BBC Radio Wales to talk about the hunt for the best ever science lesson.

The blurb says, "It’s being said that fewer kids are studying science at school. The Government are so concerned that they are changing the curriculum to make science more relevant. So Heinemann is throwing down the gauntlet to all teachers of pupils aged between 11 and 14 – and their students: tell us about the science lesson that you really love, the one that gets you really excited and enthusiastic about your subject. It could be a fantastic chemistry lesson, a mind-boggling experiment in physics or a life-changing biology fact learned just last week."

The Heinemann KS3 Science Challenge is inviting teachers to submit an outline of their lessons in 400 words accompanied by other materials that would help the judges reach their decision. Authors of the 10 best lessons will each receive £500 of Heinemann resources.

Among the judging panel is Rebecca Edwards of the QCA.  The QCA consulted with CASE back in 2000.  CASE’s science curriculum provided some of the material the QCA used to help inspire future critical thinkers.
