Women in Science
This series of Home Educator sessions is all about some less well-known women who have made big contributions in science, technology, engineering and maths.
We will find out about these pioneering women, discover what they achieved and explore some of the things they investigated.
Through the series we will build a ‘Top Trumps’ deck of fabulous female scientists, and carry out some fun experiments based on their work.
Discover how to measure what a star is made of and find out about the spectra of stars with Cecilia Payne. Then delve into dark matter with Vera Rubin.
This session forms part of our special programme, just for home educated young learners, with weekly sessions of hands-on activities.
The sessions will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and each week will be based on a different curriculum topic. We will also have some free exploration time.
