#1

If you are in education, please do use this thread to discuss what you can do with your school to take part in ALD15, and to share resources, ideas, links and support!

I’d like to work out some way of including younger children in ALD. I’d like to think that generally there is less of an attitude that science is “not for girls” with the young children I work with, but on the other hand, the more I can engage and interest the girls at age 6, the more (hopefully) their interest will stay with them as they get older.

That is a really good idea! I’m not sure if this is of any help:

But it’s a book that was produced for last year’s ALD by Westskills. If you want help specifically discussing younger children, perhaps start a thread detailing what sort of thing you’re looking for, and I’ll see if I can whip up some interest.

That book is brilliant! I am definitely going to use that with my class. It will be interesting to see what the children’s responses are.

I haven’t looked into this in detail, but Simon Singh has resources for teachers about maths & the Simpsons, and I know in he has a good chapter on Lisa and Sophie Germain, so might be something to pull out of this:
