Understanding the Solar System and how to teach it can be a tricky business. Don't panic though, we are here to help. We have teamed up with FutureLearn to create a MOOC (massive, online, open, course) called Our Solar System and Beyond:Teaching Primary 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 three-week online course, we will help you understand space, address some common misconceptions, and introduce you to the science and people behind real-life, cutting-edge discoveries. You’ll also find out how to select the most appropriate resources for your primary science lessons. You’ll explore digital resources, museum tips, video chats and podcasts, and find out what works best for your students.
