Women in the Workplace, Going to University on a Shoestring, and so on. GlamSci also offer a series of motivational talks applicable to local support groups and businesses, highlighting STEM business skills and the importance of resilience, how to overcoming adversity, build confidence and more. Talks can be tailor written to suit the institute, and be requested for any educational institution, business or event.
Activity and Demonstration Days
One of our most popular events, activity and demonstrations days gets members 'hand-on' with STEM activities. From freezing bananas with liquid nitrogen, to practicing programming simple codes, members can experience what STEM professionals do in their day-to-day lives. The content of these Activity and Demonstration days can be tailored to suit the current curriculum for all age-ranges, as well as being an interesting event for team-building days.
INSET Training and CPD Events
One of our newest editions to our programme is our INSET and CPD Training events. In these events, teaching staff train under current scientists to learn about how curriculum changes affect real-life STEM professionals, and how to teach tricky STEM areas by professionals in their fields. These events take focus away of learning 'How to Teach' and helping STEM teachers fall back in love with their subject by finding imaginative ways of getting the subject material across using techniques used in the STEM workplace. INSET and CPD Events, are tailor designed to suit any INSET theme, and can be an interesting addition to an NQT's CPD profile.
