Chain reaction conference
Wednesday 02 March 2016
Chain Reaction is a three-year project funded by the European Commission which aims to develop Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) across twelve partner countries.
The project will provide interactive and engaging IBSE professional development to teacher education professionals from each participating country using tried and tested inquiry based science resources. Participating teachers will in turn be briefed through a dedicated course in each partner country. Once fully confident with the IBSE approach encouraged by Chain Reaction the participating teachers will deliver a series of exciting and student- focused lessons which explore research-based projects.
As part of their STEM ambassador activity, doctoral students Hasan Aldewachi and Mootaz Salman took part in the Chain Reaction Project, a national student conference for secondary school students held at the University, where they acted as expert judges for the oral presentations and took responsibility for the marking process of participants. The winning team will represent the UK at an international conference in Bulgaria.
