Empiribox @ Home is a digital service with lessons delivered direct to pupils by a science teacher. They are structured to facilitate pauses for children to complete the knowledge and skills based investigations and include starter activities, investigations, scientific skill focus, scientific explanation, challenge activities and quizzes. They can be replicated by teachers in the classroom as exemplar lessons if preferred.
Empiribox Select offers teachers a pick and mix choice of lesson boxes filled with the necessary equipment to complete each lesson on a termly lease. The lesson documentation provide starter activities, investigations, scientific skill focus, scientific explanation, challenge activities, plenaries and quizzes
Support is available for teachers in the form of a dedicated email and phone number. Schools can use the details below to seek advice on products, pedagogy and classroom management of practical science. In-school and online training is also available at an additional cost.
Empiribox can transform the way science is taught in primary schools.
“Empiribox gave me the confidence to teach science. Every lesson plan includes an overview of what’s needed. Everything is simplified. It’s easy. When your fully understand what you are teaching it’s so much better!”
Here is a link to a number to case studies completed by some of our subscriber schools.
Our scheme is written for non-specialist primary teachers by secondary science teachers who have much primary experience. The scheme is fully compliant with the national curriculum for Years 1-6 including the Working Scientifically statements, and our Reception scheme will soon be launched at no extra cost to your school.
The aim of the scheme is to upskill all teachers as well as develop pupil science skills. We achieve this through our extensive suite of over 100 training videos and 400+ lesson activities. The beauty of our scheme is there is no requirement for heavy investment in science equipment.
