I set up these activities on 5 separate tables, and spilt pupils into groups. Then they had to investigate the games using the 'Game support pack&' as prompts which they needs to fill in. I ran this over two lessons. The online game is on nrich, and you can have one group working at the interactive whiteboard - or there is alternative game. \nThe following two lessons they had to design their own games in groups and provide probability analysis.

A lesson looking at Women in Science and the contributions they have made, hopefully inspiring young girls in Schools to consider a career in STEM fields.
Starter: Work out what all the pictures have in common (all discoveries made by women), match up the questions to the percentage answers.
Main:Task 1- complete the 'Women In Science Factfind' worksheet using the computers.
Task 2- Create a factfile about a particular woman in Science. 5 factfiles to go through as a class to give them an idea of what to include.
Plenary: Sharing in pairs information about their woman in Science, then presenting to the group interesting facts about their woman in Science.
Homework: Produce a poster or leaflet to persuade more women / girls to get into scientific fields of work.
The last slide has links to different organisation that work to get more women into scientific fields of work.
Science students often struggle to understand the concept of a control investigation, something which is regularly examined by most exam board specifications. This worksheet explains clearly what a control investigation is and then provides several practice investigations which require students to describe a suitable control. Finally, the worksheet provides an extra 'challenge' question for more able students to describe how control experiments were important in establishing the germ theory of disease and debunking the myth of spontaneous generation.
