Girls in the physics classroom

Key Stage 3/4 Science: Girls in Physics is a documentary that was produced by Teacher’s TV and features a real lesson showing how a teacher attempts to ensure that girls are engaged in the lesson.

The aims of the videos are: 

  • to present the important findings of research in an accessible and entertaining way, so that teachers remember key messages
  • to show teaching approaches that will promote effective learning of physics among all students, and to encourage girls to consider continuing with the subject
  • to stimulate discussion among teachers about their own practices
  • to encourage school departments to review their teaching and learning strategies
