Star Clubbing
Hogan, Maria; Davis, Sarah
Primary Science, n119 p33-35 Sep 2011
Despite the rewards, there are numerous barriers to teachers running clubs: (1) getting weekly fresh activity ideas and resourcing them; (2) the lack of a budget; and (3) shortage of time. With the best will in the world, it is easy to feel that time is already swallowed up with planning and assessment of normal lessons, let alone putting in the extra effort to plan club activities and somehow raise funds and "blag" resources! In this article, the authors highlight hints, tips, and the potential benefits of running a science club using the CREST Star Investigators scheme through a project funded by John Lyon's Charity.
