Our future depends on exploring all the frontiers of science, on innovative technologies based on these explorations and on the development of scientific literacy in all peoples through science education.

Support materials for the first two Ways Into Science books now online

Recently I’ve been working on support materials for my Ways Into Science book series. These materials are freely available from the site and consist of:

A video to complement each book, supported by a “Stop and chat” sheet to use in the classroom and stimulate discussion with your students, a quiz for each book (with an answer sheet for the teacher) and finally an experiment report sheet for students to report the results of their experiments.

As an example, here is the video to accompany Ways Into Science – Plants:


The materials for the first two books are now available and can be found using the links below, the materials for the other books in the series will be released over the next month or two.
