  Important Note
This course is very hands-on with many practical examples. Teachers are expected to take part in the activities during the day as much as possible (unless they want to go home early!) and are also encouraged to bring or think up ideas of their own to share with the group.
  The hope is that teachers will experience the interest and excitement that pupils will feel in a successful science lesson. The key to learning science is "DOING", not watching. Any interest expressed in APP or AfL will not be encouraged!
