Raising Levels of Student Interest in Less Popular Areas of the Biology Curriculum: Can Teacher CPD Help?
School Science Review, v94 n348 p127-131 Mar 2013
An opportunity for teachers to join 80 outstanding biological sciences undergraduates in a series of practical sessions and lectures at the 2010 Gatsby Plant Science Summer School has inspired the development of teaching and learning resources for use in schools. Plant scientists have a crucial role to play in society and it is hoped that the resources will help to stimulate interest in this important but less popular area of the biology curriculum.
