What is Snapshot Science?
Science is often at the forefront of media attention, be it a news story, movie, television programme or new technology.
Using topical narratives makes science lessons more relevant, engaging and motivating but very often finding links to the topics being taught and designing accompanying resources takes up valuable PPA time.
This is where Snapshot Science can help. It is a blog that not only seeks out these topical stories, but suggests ideas on how they could be used in the science classroom and provides original, free, downloadable resources.
The idea for Snapshot Science came about when I was looking through some of the old resources that I created as a teacher. I had amassed a huge collection of news stories that I had cut out from newspapers that I had planned to base lessons around and never found the time.
I know that this is something that many science teachers also do, but there must be an easier way than trawling though the web and papers every week! So, I decided to combine my love of writing, designing resources and surfing the web – hence Snapshot Science was born.
