Malmesbury School Science department – You Tube reaches million views
Malmesbury School Science department are thrilled to announce that their You Tube channel has reached 1 million views. Gabrielle Peers-Dent (Senior Curriculum Leader) explained that the initial idea for the channel was as a way for Malmesbury School students to revise the required practicals for the new GCSE and help them catch up if they were absent.
“We couldn’t have imagined how successful our channel would become though. Very quickly we started to get messages from students and teachers around the country asking for us to film more. We were complemented on the quality of the videos and the clarity of the explanations”.
Physics teacher, Huw Rees, took on the challenge of producing the videos.
“Our science faculty does amazing work every day due to the expertise of the teachers and it’s a delight to see this work having a wider influence and benefitting young people all over the world.”
Messages have been received from far and wide including from a project in Zambia. Shulegenie is a solar powered e-learning platform which are now utilising the You Tube videos with the aim to reach 15,000 students who have never seen the inside of a lab before. The channel continues to grow with the staff now busy filming A level science practicals.
