Sixth Form STEM Sessions for A Level Students

Our STEM sessions are designed to support the A level curricula in Physics and Maths.

The learning opportunities are built to challenge your student’s understanding placing them in a ‘real world’ situation in which they must apply their knowledge.

PHYSICS

All sessions are led by a physics specialist who has many years of experience of teaching A-level physics and is a tutor with the Institute of Physics (IoP).

You can tailor the day exactly to the needs of your students by selecting up to 6 activities from the list. Please take the time to Look-at-the-activities-available.  You will start your visit with a tour of the ship which covers the historical use of the vessel as a convoy ship in WWII. Students will be introduced to relevant parts of the ship linked with your chosen learning outcomes. Students will be encouraged to apply concepts and link previous learning to real-world situations in a unique and exciting educational environment.

We are able to host a maximum of 20 students and ask that there are a minimum of two school staff to support due to the nature of the environment. We do ask that members of school staff who are in attendance on the visit are also confident with assisting students with physics at the A level standard.

The study days are FREE and generally held between 10.30 am and 2.30 pm but times can be negotiated if required.

MATHS

After a tour, which covers the historical use of the vessel as a convoy ship in WWII the students will collaborate to explore and work out maths problems introduced through an online platform. All the maths is directly related to the ship through the A level syllabus.

Students will be encouraged to apply concepts and link previous learning to real-world situations in a unique and exciting educational environment.

 

 

 

Curriculum areas covered by our FREE sessions include

Mechanics

Probability & statistics

Positional vectors

Pythagoras’s theorem

Transformation of graphs

Trigonometry

 

We are able to host a maximum of 20 students and ask that there are a minimum of two school staff to support due to the nature of the environment. If you are able to bring three members of staff it allows us to use an additional part of the ship.

We do ask that members of school staff who are in attendance on the visit are also confident with assisting students with maths at the A level standard.

The study days are generally held between 10.30 am and 2.30 pm but times can be negotiated if required. We can also run half day sessions. Whether you choose to visit for the whole day or just half a day we will give you access to the tasks on the platform through passwords, these will remain active for one week. This will then allow you to further explore the tasks in the classroom or through homework.

 

Give your students the chance to apply their learning to a real world situation and really show their learning and understanding of maths.
