Connecting the Curriculum - ESI Teacher Affiliate Day
Teachers and technicians from Cornwall’s post-16 sector spent a day with Kevin Gaston's research group for the first ESI Teacher Affiliate Day.
An interdisciplinary group of Physics, Biology and Environmental Science teachers and support staff participated in a program of lectures, field site visits and practical sessions which led to the teachers gaining materials that could be used directly in classrooms and was thoroughly enjoyed by the delegates and research group alike.
Jon Grey, a Senior Manager at Truro-Penwith College said, "It was a day that exceeded all expectations. They have come back invigorated and full of new ideas and plans”.
