Hello, my name is Ally Caldecote and I'm the Ogden School Teacher Fellow at the University of Warwick, in the Department of Physics. I've taught physics in local schools and colleges for the last 7 years, and my role at the university is to work with local teachers to enthuse students about physics and enhance their learning. I am keen to work collaboratively with local teachers.
Some of our past outreach activities have involved bringing groups of students into the university, to see interactive demonstrations and meet academics. I have also gone to schools to work with the students there.
Here you can find some of the activities I have done in various schools. One of the more recent activities that I have been involved with is Commotion, a project for Primary schools exploring the science of sound and movement further details and a preview of one aspect of the event can be found here.
The Big Bang Fair 2012 was held at the NEC, Birmingham and welcomed over 56,000 visitors. Along with 11 University of Warwick Physicists I spoke to over 5,000 young people, teachers and parents. More information regarding our presence at the Big Bang Fair 2012 can be found here.
