New education resources launched for 2013

Tomorrow will see the launch of the latest extension of our SciberMonkey website, at the ASE Annual Conference in Reading.

www.scibermonkey.org

The new version of the website includes links to some of the best free online science resources for 14-16 year olds and their teachers. Up to now the site has catered for pupils aged from 5-14, and has continued to prove popular with young people and teachers alike. The extension to the site aims to support students through the crucial years leading up to their exams.

SciberMonkey is designed to provide a FREE ‘one-stop-shop’ for teaching and learning resources in science. All the links have been carefully selected by science teachers and other science education experts, and mapped according to key topics across the biology, chemistry and physics curricula. It therefore offers quick and easy access to a wide range of quality assured resources – from practical activities, animations and worksheets to revision materials and interactive educational games.

We are also launching a set of careers posters for the classroom. These posters have been jointly developed with a number of other bioscience societies. They aim to inspire 14yrs+ students about the career options available within the biosciences. The posters cover the topics: Sport (as seen), Medicine, Sustainability, Food, Animals, and Future careers. We have also created a supporting web resource where students and teachers can find more information: http://www.biology-careers.org.

Come talk to us at The Biology Stand (stand A1) for more information about the above resources and other support we can offer science teachers and students. Registration for the exhibition at the conference is free.

Alternatively you can contact the Education Department at education@biochemistry.org. We’d love to know what you think of the site, and whether we have missed any resources you think we should add!
