Gratnells was delighted to sponsor CBBC’s Fran Scott for a lively hour-long CPD presentation on the final day of the annual ASE (Association for Science Education) Conference held at Reading University on 10th January. Speaking to a capacity audience, Fran ‘ignited the imagination’ of over a hundred science teachers who had come along to translate her style of making science more engaging to students within the classroom setting.
After the presentation, Pete Robinson, immediate past Chair of the ASE said of Gratnells sponsorship of the event: “It is pleasing that there are companies like Gratnells … We’re looking for opportunities to work in partnership with our corporate partners such as Gratnells. And Gratnells went off and did this virtually completely on their own – with our support – and they came to us with the idea. And how lovely, what a great way to engage people with science teaching and learning. A really fantastic story, and what was so great about the story, was not the we got a ‘science show’ – we can go anywhere to get a science show – we got the thinking behind that science show.”
You will be able to see the full video on the Gratnells website in the next two weeks. You can also learn more about Fran Scott and her new roadshow ‘#Error404’ at: www.greatscottscienceshows.co.uk
Regular readers of this blog will know that very little gets us as excited as seeing our trays on the TV. We were thrilled to spot some grey trays in this week’s opening episode of ITV’s Broadchurch season 2. In the scene where DI Alec Hardy (David Tennant) goes into the courtroom he passes through a security check where he puts his Blackberry into a grey deep tray at the scanner in the fictional Wessex County Court.
Broadchurch is ITV’s award winning crime thriller set in the picturesque seaside town of Broadchurch, featuring DI Alec Hardy and DS Ellie Miller. You can read more and catch up with the latest episode here.
