Schools’ Programme

We’re all doing things in new ways this year. Class time is precious with so much to catch up on, and resources are stretched. We know there’s not a lot of time in the day for enrichment.

We’ve come up with three ways your students can meet researchers remotely, and in quick-time…

We want children to ask questions and learn about the wealth of career opportunity open to them through continued learning.

We aim to show how researchers are making a difference in Wales, and how your students’ future selves could contribute to solving the world’s problems.

Our activities are all online access, require no special scheduling with external providers and are designed to be done as class work or homework. They also fit neatly into registration/tutorial time if that’s where there is space in the school day for something a little different.

Why?

Dates: throughout November
Key Stages: 2-3
Duration: 15-30 minutes

Is there a question that you’ve always wanted answered? How big is Jupiter? What happened to the dinosaurs? Can frogs eat chocolate? Download our poster to get your question across; a crack team of researchers is on hand to answer you.

Language Matters

Dates: throughout November
Key Stages: 3+
Duration: 15-30 minutes

Science doesn’t happen in a silo, away from subjects. We have teamed up with MFL Student Mentoring Project  to broaden understanding of how languages are present in all parts of life, including in relation to science. We have challenged our ADIFF researchers to think about the role that languages and cultures have played in their research, in shaping their careers and as part of their personal journeys.

Researchers have made short videos (1-2 mins) about the role that languages and culture plays in their work. Your students can ask questions and receive answers answered in another video.

Ask Me Anything

Dates: throughout November
Key Stages: 3+
Duration: 15-30 minutes

Have you ever wondered what researchers do all day? What made them want to study what they do? What’s it like working in a University, maybe even a long way from home? Our researchers have made short videos to say hello to students in school and talk a little about their lives in research. Your students can ask them questions and have a video made specially to answer them.
