PSQM in Wales – Bursaries available

PSQM is delivered to schools in Wales by our expert PSQM hub leaders in both Welsh and English. PSQM' s approach to professional learning reflects the Welsh National Approach to Professional Learning, enabling individual development within the school context, building collaborative learning communities and recognising success.

Recognising the long-term and sustainable impact of PSQM and its use as a tool to help schools implement the new Welsh curriculum, the Wellcome Trust has provided PSQM with legacy funding to support primary science teaching in Wales. This funding has enabled PSQM to provide 60 bursaries of £500 for Welsh primary schools to take part in PSQM, reducing the overall cost to schools from £850 to £350. Schools can choose to start PSQM in either autumn 2021 or spring 2022. The deadline for schools to register for these bursaries is 30th June 2021, but the number or bursaries available is strictly limited so we would advise you to register as soon as possible. To receive more information or to register your interest, please email PSQM@herts.ac.uk or complete our online form.

Put students at the centre of the action with Energy Quest!

Get in touch to book a workshop!

We’re calling on all students aged 11 to 14 to help us save the day. In this new workshop, they’ll embed learning about energy sources and energy transfer as they put themselves in the shoes of engineers to design a solution to power a mobile phone.

This free 2-hour Energy Quest workshop, funded by Shell, is a great way to revisit core curriculum content and bring relatable role-models into the classroom.

Would you like a trained facilitator to run a remote session with your students? We’re booking workshops for the summer term and beyond – get in touch today to reserve your spot!

Financial Foundations workshop for secondary schools. Thursday 24th June 4 – 5pm

Confidence in managing finance is a key skill for all pupils and an important pillar of the curriculum, including health and wellbeing.

To assist teachers and pupils STEM Ambassadors from Nat West will introduce you to their workshops covering year groups in Secondary Schools.

These workshops are delivered in schools but can also be experienced in online classes.

STEM Ambassadors will gain insight into a workshop offered to engage secondary pupils.

Available to book now – Chemistry of COVID workshop for years 5 to 8.

See Science, with funding from the Royal Society of Chemistry, have developed a brand new Chemistry workshop based on COVID-19. We aim to answer questions children everywhere are likely to have following a global pandemic.

The full workshop will involve 3 different sessions, approximately 50 minutes each. The first will be delivered by See Science and will be an introduction to viruses, COVID-19, pandemics and vaccines. This will then be followed by a teacher-led session with hands-on activities for pupils to carry out with all materials/resources provided. Finally, there will be a third session, again delivered by us, which will include a debate activity and plenary.

We can deliver remotely, and the three sessions can be run in one day or spread out over a few days - to suit the school.

Please contact llinos.misra@see-science.co.uk to book or for more information.
