Pupil Led Investigation

Suitable For: Teaching staff, NQTs, TAs, science co-ordinators
Price – £210 + VAT or free of charge as part of Science Oxford’s annual membership


Giving pupils more creative input over what and how they investigate will really increase their engagement and motivation – both for the science and in making links to learning in literacy and numeracy. In this course we share a variety of practical ideas for stimulating and managing pupil-led investigations.

Course Outcomes
  • Techniques for prompting pupil led thinking
  • Techniques for managing pupil led investigations in the classroom
  • Introduction to Big Science Event competition
