Professional Development: Using SCINEMA in your classroom

In June, we hosted a virtual professional development session for STEM educators, to show how to use SCINEMA International Science Film Festival films and associated educational resources with your classes.

During the session, we previewed a film from this years festival and explored the accompanying resource. We showed what to expect from these education resource packs, how to best use them, and what your students can expect to get from it.

You can watch this session below – you just have to be signed in.
