Kids' Lab: Making a BIGGER Difference
Hoath, Leigh
Primary Science, n154 p19-21 Sep 2018
Often unheard of unless you are of a certain age and remember audio and video cassettes, BASF are a multinational business with a large chemical site in Bradford, West Yorkshire. On the BASF site is a 'Kids' Lab' that forms part of BASF's educational outreach work. In this article, Leigh Hoath and five teachers from Bradford schools outline a project they have worked on to improve outreach experiences with industry. The project provided a chance to revise what was happening in the Kids' Lab to align the materials more closely with child-led enquiry and the National Curriculum in England in order to better support teachers in school. The working party of teachers is made up of: Georgina Shaw, Helen Sutton, Sally Ng, Ann Buckley, and Mona-Lisa Khan. Jo Love served as the site communicator.
