Science school trips

science chemistry Chemistry Chemistry in the class room doesn't need to be about trawling through text books or trying to memorise the periodic table, practical activities are fun and help motivate pupils to learn and enjoy the subject.
science physics Physics Physics governs our every day lives, so making the connection between mathematical formulas that make your brain hurt, and the physics of the every day is really important to every child's understanding.
science biology Biology Museums, zoos, wildlife centres or simply the local natural environment, no matter where you take your pupils you can be sure that showing them Biology first hand will prove more popular than a text book.
science environmental Environmental Science The courses in this section will provide your students with practical experience that will improve their understanding of environmental sciences.

Study Physics, Chemisty or Biology outside the classroom

Science can definitely be one of the more difficult school subjects in which to inspire and engage pupils. It certainly was at my school, where an unfortunate trio of drab individuals failed spectacularly to deliver what was actually a thoroughly fascinating subject. Often, scientific ideas are quite complicated to fully understand, especially for children at primary level, so practical work is essential. In addition, a recent report issued by the Association for Science Education (ASE) concluded that outdoor learning was necessary when teaching science. Giving pupils the ability to directly link first hand experience with classroom ideas will enable pupils at any key stage to get the most from the subject.

Fortunately there are a wide range of excellent venues that will help your pupils develop a love of science, from the traditional, such as wildlife centres promoting biodiversity, and transport museums who chart the historical development of scientific achievement, to the more modern dedicated science centres who offer high tech, interactive classroom style learning.

We have divided our school visit recommendations between the three core areas of science, though there is a fair amount of cross over between each so be sure to take a look at all three.
