Seminars for Gambian science teachers

Joe Brock, Head of Science at Collyer's Sixth Form College in Horsham, has produced a new science handbook for teaching Upper Basic Science (roughly GCSE) and Senior Secondary Science (roughly AS level) in The Gambia. Joe's new book contains 73 experiments. He also designed kits containing items that are inexpensive and readily available, at least in UK, to conduct these experiments. 40 of these kits were assembled and taken to The Gambia by Joe, some of his students and some Pageant members. He gave a series of seminars for science teachers from 40 different schools, showing them how to use the book and kits for teaching their students. (read the full story)
