Education and Training Manager
We have developed programmes from infants class through Transition Year that support teachers and students as they discover, engage with and investigate materials and their properties in unique and interesting ways.
Our resources aim to improve teachers and their students’ content knowledge of material science, understanding of materials science and society relationships, build awareness of materials science and STEM careers and develop students’ sense of science identity (being a scientist) facilitating the teaching of science with other subject areas in an integrated manner.
Our resources are developed with and for teachers and teacher educators, to ensure they are age appropriate, based on sound pedagogical practice.
AMBER has a strong emphasis on collaboration. Central to AMBER’s research remit are collaborative projects performed with industry partners, and working with academic, industry and wider stakeholder on international and national research programmes.Get in touch
