This session is intended for all teachers of students aged 11 to 16 years.

In this session on light and EM waves we will look at some of the misconceptions around this topic and look at the ‘language of light.’  We will also explore ways you and your students can construct ray diagrams using equipment available at home to continue to support remote learning.  In addition, we will focus on the properties of transverse waves by looking at some of the applications of parts of the EM spectrum and how these can be demonstrated.

By the end of this session you should have a good understanding of the misconceptions your students may come into your classroom with, how to address them and also practicals and teaching ideas which can be used for a blended learning approach.
