Please note that this course on 8 October is now fully booked. There are places available on 10 March 2020 and 9 June 2020.
This course also provides a valuable opportunity for technicians to meet together and share expertise. This course assumes a basic level of experience in physics.
You'll learn about hazard identification and risk assessment with demonstrations that include the following:
- ionising radiations
- flammable liquids
- electrical and mechanical hazards.
Who this course is for
It's aimed at secondary-school science laboratory technicians teaching Key Stage 3 and 4 (KS3 and KS4).
You'll learn techniques for activities that technicians often have to carry out to support physics teaching, including:
- ionising radiation - absorption, range and half life investigation
- datalogging equipment
- oscilloscope and signal generator
- ammeters, voltmeters and multimeters
- radiant heat investigations
- laser light
- electron beams
- colour mixing
- power lines.
Teaching and structure
The course is delivered as a practical workshop.
You'll need to be the science technician in your school.
By the end of the course, you'll have:
- gained confidence in the support that you provide in teaching physics
- understood hazard identification and risk assessment
- learned new techniques to support physics teaching.
£165 for CLEAPSS members.
