Partnership looking to accelerate current interest in physics
MEMBERS of the Louth Ogden Physics Hub met for the second time to plan educational opportunities for pupils in the area.
The Louth Ogden Physics Partnership is a project to promote physics in all phases of education within the Louth area.
Participating schools will receive equipment, training and activities of their choice during the next three years.
A trip to the London Science Museum for primary staff and King Edwards Grammar School sixth form physics students is planned for December.
Training and new equipment for KS1 and 2 is planned for January and a Physics careers fair is under discussion. The sixth form pupils at King Edwards Grammar School in Louth are busy designing science club lessons to take into primary schools after January and a Dry Ice Day will follow.
North Somercotes has had a 'liquid nitrogen lesson', led by Guy Lucas from the school with the help of Helen Pollard, and Ogden Partnership Advisor.
Funding for all these activities came from The Ogden Trust, a national physics education charity, and the Hub is based at Louth Grammar School with all schools welcome.
