Demo Day 2014
We want to generate a wave of inspiring science demonstrations in UK secondary schools for National Science & Engineering Week 2014.
Teachers and technicians, pledge to give any demo to your students on 20 March 2014 - the first national Demo Day - and receive equipment discounts from Timstar and a free subscription to Twig Experiments from Twig World! Your pledge will appear on our pledge map, where you can see all the people over the UK who have pledged to take part.
Demo: The Movie
Demo: The Movie is a 30-minute film that follows science teacher Alom Shaha as he goes on a journey to explore the use of demonstrations in science teaching. The film tells an interesting story and aims to encourage secondary science teachers to think about how and why they use demonstrations in their teaching.
Below is the accompanying teacher notes:
Free demo videos & written guides
As part of NSEW 2013, teachers and technicians nominated their favourite video demonstrations, and our judges chose the best six to be turned into video guides with accompanying written guides. Your favourite demonstrations are now high-quality video guides available here!
Here are the accompanying written guides for the video demonstrations:
