This self-study course has wide appeal to all physics teachers; however, it is most suited to those teaching BGE through to National 3-4 levels.   
If your application is successful, we will send you links to video tutorials and online documentation. We will also supply you with some conductive plastic and two binder clips. These resources have been funded by IoP Scotland.  In order to complete the tasks, you will also need a multimeter and leads, we hope you can source this from you school 
You will use these resources to gain ideas on the use of conductive plastic in BGE and physics investigations. We are asking that you send us details of an experiment you carried out, or a graph you have created before the 30th June.  Once we have received these details, we will ask you to complete an evaluation.  This course should take no longer than 5 hours to complete.   
If you do not complete the above tasks by the deadline (30th June) without good reason, we reserve the right to bill your school for a handling charge of £10. 
We have a small supply of resources and places on this course will be limited.   
Closing date for applications: 21st May 2021

Booking for this course is no longer possible as the closing date has passed.

Please email us at if you would still like to register your interest.
