Science is always a fast-moving discipline with deep applications to everyday life, and the current pandemic situation is a striking example of this.  Concepts taught academically in GCSE and A level Biology lessons, such as pathogen spread, immunity, drug trials and genetics now make regular news headlines.  This session explores some of the many opportunities this presents not only to reinforce these in a meaningful way to students preparing for exams, but also to help them to develop the scientific thinking and data analysis skills that can prepare them for life in a changing world.  Also, the science itself is fascinating and presents countless opportunities to feed students’ (and our) natural curiosity at all levels and ages.

Who is this for?

Key Stage 4 and 5 Biology teachers or those with an interest in Science
