Q&A with Adam and Tom

After the supported period for this course, Adam Little and Tom Lyons will answer a selection of your questions posted below as part of a question and answer (Q&A) session.

Thank you for taking part in the course and posting your questions. Tom and Adam responded to the following topics:

  • Further online courses for physics - Su
    We don’t currently have more physics-specific courses, but you may wish to look at our STEM Teaching program and other courses in the Teaching Practical Science program focusing on the pedagogic aspects of teaching physics. See also the wealth of STEM Resources provided free, online, for teachers and other educators.
  • Further support for technicians - David

  • Engaging young people in physics outside the classroom - Lucas
    STEM Clubs may be a useful approach here and we offer resources and guidance. We also coordinate and provide support for STEM Ambassadors in the UK, who are industry professionals who volunteer their time to support young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. A similar programme may operate in your country or region. If not, you can reach out to local STEM industries to see if they would be interested in working with your students.
  • Trends in students taking physics - Melvin

If you’ve missed the Q&A opportunity, we hope to see you on the next run of Teaching Practical Science: Physics where you’ll be able to ask Adam and Tom your questions.
