Renowned scientist Professor Lord Robert Winston is inviting the world’s primary teachers to share their best lessons to inspire the next generation about science at an event in London in November. The first World Teach In, organised by Tigtag (a Twig World resource) and Suklaa in association with Imperial College London, will bring together hundreds of teachers from across the world over Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd November 2014 for a unique professional development experience.
World Teach In, which will be held at Imperial’s South Kensington Campus, is a global pop up science school taking primary school teachers back to the classroom. The science school will feature assemblies with leading science experts; classes with world-class teachers demonstrating outstanding science lessons; and playtimes with remarkable science comedians, kitchen scientists and even buskers.
Every teacher will receive lesson plans, resources and other goodies from event sponsors such as SMART and Steljes so they can try out ideas in their own classes.
World Teach In is now calling for primary teachers from across the world to step forward with their ideas for teaching 10 spellbinding science lessons. Teachers have until 15 August 2014 to submit their proposals to the World Teach In judges who will select 10 to lead parts of the conference programme.
Professor Lord Robert Winston, keynote speaker at World Teach In, said:
A child’s interest in science is formed when they are at their most inquisitive – at primary school. When I go into schools and talk to children I see that good science teaching is able to transform natural curiosity into a lifelong passion for science. World Teach In will bring together the best teachers to share their lessons with their peers and will mean that more children in classrooms across the world can develop a wonder and understanding of science.
