Research

Digital Access to Science Learning Resources (DASLR) project (Funded by the Primary Science Teaching Trust.) The three year project commenced in August 2014 and has two strands.  Strand one aims to create an exploration facility based on a prototype exploration engine developed by J Pearce called 'iFish'. Strand two aims to create 3D bitesize video podcasts (vodcasts) reporting on current cutting edge science and science education.
