School Workshops: Analysis of Student and Teacher Feedback

The MEET-CINCH project aims to mitigate the skills gap in nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry, attract new talent to the field and develop a long-term sustainable strategy for education in nuclear and radiochemistry. One of its activities is development of a teaching package for high school use. In order to test the latest developments of the teaching material, the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) carried out five workshops with schools based in Cumbria and the North West of the United Kingdom. In total, 47 students and 6 chemistry teachers took part in the Ionlab workshops. On completion of the workshops, teachers and students were asked to fill in a short survey. The feedback has been summarized in a report which you can find below.
