Alex has worked in a variety of schools for thirteen years before becoming Senior Lecturer in Primary Science at St Mary’s in 2007. He is enthusiastic about all areas of science teaching but is particularly interested in the use of ‘hooks’ at the start of the lesson as a process to stimulate learning.
His passion about issues surrounding sustainability has focussed his doctoral studies which investigate how the science curriculum can be used to develop ecoliteracy.
As part of his drive to introduce sustainability into the curriculum he has had responsibility for organising growing spaces for the students to use. Alex also helped arrange the arrival of a colony of bees to the School of Education.
