Teaching secondary science in an engaging way can be a difficult. Fear not - that's where we can help. We have teamed up with FutureLearn to create a MOOC (massive, online, open, course) called Astronomy and Space Physics:Teaching Secondary Science. The course is FREE (you can pay to upgrade and receive certificates though if you wish) and runs multiple times each year.

In this online course, we will help you understand the factors that affect science learning, we'll help consolidate your space science knowledge, share ideas to spice up your science lessons and look at how science beyond the classroom can inspire you and your students. You’ll explore digital resources, tips from a variety of science professionals, video chats and podcasts, so that you have the tools to teach space science with confidence.
