Lead Educators

Steffan Tudor

steffan tudorHead of Physics at Ysgol Glan Clwyd in St.Asaph 

 

Ysgol Glan Clwyd is a welsh medium secondary comprehensive school and was the first of its kind when established in 1956. All of our subjects are taught through the medium of welsh and it is this aspect of the Lead Educator's provision which I would like to develop. I have been teaching for 15 years and am enthusiastic about Physics and Astronomy. I have been teaching GCSE Astronomy after school for the last 4 years and have been running an annual 'Space Camp' at the school since April 2009. The Space Camp is a three day year 8 cross curricular event which involves activities including launching rockets, building Mars Landers and Solar Observing with lecturers from Aberystwyth University. We have visited the National Space Centre for the last 2 years as part of the Space Camp, and the pupils have won Bronze and Silver CREST Awards for their hard work.

 


Over the years our pupils have taken part in many competitions and events including appearances on national television during some observing with the Noth Wales Astronomical Society, an article published in the Sky at Night magazine, and winning a national competition to name a newly discovered asteroid. The asteroid was named after Isaac Roberts who pioneered astrophotography in the nineteenth century and was born less than ten miles from our school.

I believe that astronomy encapsulates the very essence of science which is the search for and understanding of the unknown. This role will give me the opportunity to share good ideas with pupils and teachers and to be up to date with the latest developments in this exciting field.
