‘Physics in BSL’ Event in London – Tuesday 19th June 2012

Thank you to David Kettle from the British Deaf Astronomy Association for passing on these details.

Students, teachers, BSL/English interpreters, communication support workers and others involved in making the science curriculum accessible to students who sign are invited to attend a free dissemination event for the project on 19th June 2012 at The Royal Academy of Engineering in Central London .

The team of Deaf scientists and sign linguists from the Scottish Sensory Centre (SSC) who developed the BSL science sign glossary www.sciencesigns.ac.uk targeted at KS3 and KS4 science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) have been working on the production of new BSL signs for Physics and Engineering-related terms.

Audrey Cameron, Gary Quinn and Rachel O’Neill will be presenting the findings from the project which is funded by the STEM Disability Committee.

The afternoon session featuring an interactive science show based around experiments that show the signs in action shows very engaging.

To reserve a place email diversity@raeng.org.uk or call them on 0207 766 0600.
