Science in School Advent Calendar

Science in School Advent Calendar

Science in School www.scienceinschool.org is offering an advent calendar with a difference - no little doors to open, no pictures of snowmen and no chocolate. Instead, each day for 24 days, they will send you an email with an inspiring teaching idea.

Perhaps a science game to play at the end of term, maybe a fun experiment, some fascinating science facts, links to particularly good websites, or a beautiful picture to use in lessons.The first email will be sent out on 1 December - sign up now so as not to miss out. Just visit the Science in School website www.scienceinschool.org, enter your email address in the box in the right-hand column and click on the 'Submit' button.

If you enjoy the advent calendar you will love the free quarterly Science in School journal. The journal aims to promote inspiring science teaching by encouraging communication between teachers, scientists, and everyone else involved in European science education.

It highlights the best in teaching and cutting-edge research, covering not only biology, physics and chemistry, but also earth sciences, engineering and medicine, focusing on interdisciplinary work. The contents include teaching materials; cutting-edge science; important science topics, projects in science education; interviews with inspiring scientists and teachers; reviews of books and other resources; and many other useful resources for science teachers.

You don't have to register to read and download any of the articles from the website. If you do register (it's free), you can receive an email alert, leave your comments on articles, and use the discussion forum. Online articles are also available in many European languages.
