Richard Read is a Science teacher at Plymouth School of Creative Arts. He is very excited to be developing a Science department from scratch, looking at how he can enthuse pupils towards Science, and enable them to become independent Scientific researchers in their own right, passionate about playing and experimenting in order to explore and discover.
Project-based learning (PBL) changes how we look at education and the best ways to engage young people in learning. Learning is all around. It is in books, in classrooms, outdoors, at home, in museums and workplaces; everywhere all the time. We learn through reading, listening, engaging, but mostly by doing. When we apply what we learn to something tangible - something interesting to us - we remember it. We want to learn more about it, and learn more about things around it.
