Practical experiments are the only way for primary school pupils to be fully engaged in science and learn the basic science concepts. However, practical science lessons require schools to own a wide range of equipment, which they have to store, maintain and replace themselves. Sourcing such equipment is time consuming and costly, not to mention it is difficult to know what to buy for a non-science professional.
Empiribox have the solution! We provide schools with everything they need, organised and in one place, so that they can do hands-on science every lesson for all classes in KS1 and KS2.
Each term, schools will receive a new set of equipment for children to work in pairs, resources for teaching and a full-day CPD accredited training for teachers to gain confidence with practical science lessons. The resources include comprehensive schemes of work for the coming term, lesson plans, assessment guides and break-down of the H&S for all lessons.
The Empiribox approach is not only cost affective, but alleviates the school of the difficulties faced with owning/purchasing their own equipment. Removing this overhead gives teachers more time and allows focus to be on teaching inspiring science lessons.
