Teacher Training Scholarship

"What I enjoy most about teaching is sharing interesting facts that make students go... no way!"

I had a discussion recently with a student about if nuclear fusion was now a reality for power generation. The students also love discussing why birds don’t become electrocuted when sitting on high voltage wires.

What I enjoy most about teaching is sharing interesting facts that make students go “no way!” Or finding ways to make the topic fun. Physics seems to have become known amongst students as being ‘hard’ and is often unloved by many studying at GCSE. I love the idea of putting creativity and fun into the subject. I feel science should be as much about play and asking “why?", as it is about processes for investigating and quantifying results.

I chose teaching because I wished to enter into a career that I felt would be satisfying. I was an engineer by training, so physics was an obvious choice of subject.

The buzz at the CPD events for scholars is incredibly motivating experience. The events have given me ideas that I have used in classes. The link to other training physicists has been wonderful; I’m the only physics trainee on my teacher training course and hence it’s great to be part of a wider network and know I’m not alone.
