The University of Warwick's Widening Participation Team are launching Topic in a Box - an initiative designed for GCSE students. Topic in a Box is an in-school activity that can either be a digital or physical box and provides a fun and interactive lesson linked closely to the GCSE curriculum. This is designed by staff or students at the University of Warwick. More boxes will be uploaded over the coming months.
