About this work

Also known as

Screen title; KS3/4 science


The Wellcome Trust and Teachers' TV have collaborated to produce three pairs of programmes aimed at KS4 science teachers and students. Each pair contains one student programme and one professional development (CPD) programme covering the topic. The student programme sets the science firmly in its social context, exploring the impact it has on people's lives and the ethical issues it raises. The CPD programme contains a discussion of the implications for classroom practice -- Sleeve.
