Join us to explore how sustainability can be linked to chemistry, biology and physics in a day of workshops and discussions for teachers of science. Together with the Association of Science Education, the Institute of Physics and Swansea University’s Reducing Industrial Carbon Emissions (RICE) project, we will deliver activities and practicals on a range of topics, including the important role that algae can play in decarbonising industry, and an investigation of microscale science as a more sustainable approach to practical work.

This fully funded event is supported by STEM Learning and is aimed at secondary science teachers, technicians, newly qualified teachers and trainee teachers, and would be of most benefit to those developing new curriculums and/or working with classes in progression step 4 and progression step 5 (approx. KS3 and KS4).

Bursaries will be available from STEM Learning Ltd.


By the end of the day, you will:

  • Have experienced a range of activities and practicals to help stimulate learners’ enthusiasm for science.
  • Know how to use a context (like how algae is helping to decarbonise industry) to design an engaging cross-curricular experience for your learners.
  • Know more about current and ongoing scientific research in Wales, with a focus on sustainability research and associated careers.
  • Have had the opportunity to network and collaborate with other science teachers.

Session information

This event will consist of:

  • A series of hands on workshops delivered by RSC, IOP and the RICE project.
  • A presentation by a guest speaker.
  • Networking opportunites with other teachers.

Lunch will be provided.

This session is developed in line with our professional development standards.
