CREST Awards as part of the Primary Curriculum

To support Primary teachers to use CREST activities in the classroom, the BSA have issued a guide on using CREST Awards as part of the curriculum. The guide includes a section specifically on the Curriculum for Wales.

The CREST guiding principles have been mapped onto the four purposes of the Curriculum and for each of the six science content areas in the Curriculum, activities have been matched from the Star collection for Foundation and from the SuperStar collection for KS2. This guide will make it easier than ever for Primary teachers to incorporate enquiry-based STEM project work into their teaching.

FREE Facilitated Chemistry Workshops (Funded by the RSC)

From early March through to the end of the summer term, See Science will be offering a variety of FREE workshops to schools across Wales. We will be flexible in how we deliver these workshops, depending on COVID restrictions - delivering face to face in schools or virtually via live links on platforms to suit the schools.

Chemistry at Work Workshop (Yr 9)

Over the past few years, we have been running Chemistry at Work days at Swansea University for Year 9 pupils but this year we are going virtual and creating videos. One benefit of this is that we can involve Chemists form other universities, as well as from a wide range of workplaces. However, even better, we can offer the workshop to schools across Wales!

The focus will be on where Chemistry can take you in the future, with insights into studying Chemistry related subjects at University and the breadth of careers they can lead to.

This will be a 2 hour workshop and we can be flexible in the delivery – either in one session or over two sessions on different days.

Chemistry in a Pandemic Workshop (Yrs 5 to 9)

This will be a brand new workshop looking at Chemistry and the role of Chemists in fighting a global pandemic.
