Dr. Parker is an ex Industrial Chemist who has worked to developed a number of Context and Problem-based Learning resources for the RSC Learn Chemistry Portal working with Teaching Fellows at several UK Universities. He has designed a Quiz about how science impacts the World around us. There are versions aimed both at School-age pupils (either Primary or Secondary). The aim is to get participants to understand how science, and especially chemistry, underpins much of our technological society, and how important it will be in the major issues of the 21st Century (e.g. energy, food security, medicine, and climate change).
The quiz is in ‘pub quiz’ format with teams of around 4. I have up to 25 questions in rounds of 5 questions each. A 10 question quiz fits into 1 school period 45-50 minutes, but the quiz can be shortened or lengthened to suit.
