1 Sophie Eccles 1 Project Presentation Sophie Eccles Redland Green School, Bristol 1

2 Sophie Eccles 2 Redland Green School Open fully since September Pupils in years 7, 8 and 12. Bristols new flagship school school. The North Bristol Post 16 Centre. Special Claremont School facility. 2

3 Sophie Eccles 3 Why I Went to Redland Green To be extra help in science lessons. To start up and run a science club. To give extra tuition to less able post 16 students. To survey post 16 students 3

4 Sophie Eccles 4 Why I Went to Redland Green Use chemistry to inspire and excite pupils. Demystify chemistry and university. Encourage chemistry at higher education. Be a chemistry student role model. 4

5 Sophie Eccles 5 Why I Went to Redland Green Learn and improve - explaining complex ideas in simple language. - dealing with difficult questions and behaviour. - organising and coordinating large groups and their activities. 5

6 Sophie Eccles 6 Science Club Held once a week Years 7 & 8 Attendance grew and varied between Worked with physics UAS student, the Head of Science and other science staff 6

7 Sophie Eccles 7 Set up and Materials For each session we - researched a topic, good demonstrations and experiments that the pupils could do. - produced a power-point presentation. - produced a handout. - did a risk assessment. 7

8 Sophie Eccles 8 Science Club – Dry Ice Demonstrations Expanding rubber glove Screeching under pressure Colour changes with pH variation Pupil Activity Dry ice in shallow or deep, cold or hot water and adding washing up liquid 8

9 Sophie Eccles 9 Fireworks and Flame Tests Demonstrations How to do the experiment (safely) Which compounds produced which colours Pupils Activity Guess the compound from the flame test colour. 9

11 Sophie Eccles 11 Making Hand warmers -Investigating Exothermic Reactions Given their task. Work out which masses of CaCl 2 they would test. 10

12 Sophie Eccles 12 10

13 Sophie Eccles 13 Making Hand warmers -Investigating Exothermic Reactions Measured temperature rise of the water and plotted a graph with their results. 10

15 Sophie Eccles 15 Making Hand warmers -Investigating Exothermic Reactions Read off ideal mass from the graph. Make the heat packs. 10

16 Sophie Eccles 16 Heat Energy and Combustion Demonstrations Candle under beaker. Chip pan fire. Discussion of the fire triangle Demonstrations Methanol rockets Non-burning £5 notes 11

17 Sophie Eccles 17 Heat Energy and Combustion Discussion Explosive hydrogen – Hindenburg Disaster Experiment Hydrogen squeaky pop Collection of gas under water 11
