STEM Outdoors at The Warwick School
Monday, June 18, 2012 at 4:30 PM (BST)
Redhill, United Kingdom
Recognising the professional development
needs of STEM club leaders.
Led by Surrey Wildlife Trust.
Great ideas for STEM clubs & taking your activites outside!
This free, twilight course is intended for anyone who is currently running or is considering running any kind of extra-curricular STEM club. The session has been organised by Liz Carter from the Warwick school. Liz recently ran a very sucessful STEM Clubs CPD session focusing on the 'big issues' with STEM Clubs and how to overcome them. This event will focus on outdoor activities and the range of STEM learning you can acomplish outside. It will be led by Surrey Wildlife Trust.
Stem club leaders will spend much of the evening outside (weather permitting) in our ecology area working through STEM activities such as:
- making shelters
- making and testing nettle string
- charcoal pencils
- looking for bugs on bushes
- setting up trails
- rudiments of small mammal trapping etc.
- creature surveys
We will consider how to manage and get the most out of these kind of activities in a club setting and what awards the students can work towards.
The evening will finish with hot chocolate/toasted marshmallows around a fire.
Delegates' equipment and training needs will be discussed. There is some funding for this event, which may be spent on equipment for each school or on a bank of equipment that can be borrowed by individual schools in the network.
If the weather is bad activities will be done inside.
If you have any questions, please contact Liz Carter here.
With all of this lovely weather we are having, it is the perfect time to explore the outdoors with your STEM Club or any other group of students. This event is coming up fast and should be a great deal of fun, so make sure you sign up now!
The STEM Clubs Network would like to thank the following organisations who have worked in collaboration to make this course possible. This course is being run by Liz Carter at the Warwick School, with the support of the STEM Clubs Network.
