1 Mins read

A school teacher from Coleraine has won a Royal Society of Chemistry award for their contributions to Chemistry Education.

Mr Frank Scullion, Head of Chemistry at Loreto College in Coleraine won the award for his “sustained high quality teaching and the use of a variety of methods to inspire students to study chemistry and encourage them to learn beyond the classroom”

Mr Scullion has a particular interest in eLearning, and since 2007 has been helping pupils learn “beyond the classroom” by creating educational videos for his Website and YouTube channel FranklyChemistry.

Since 2007, he has uploaded over 600 videos to his channel, many of which include animations which help pupils visualise and understand scientific concepts that they might otherwise struggle with.

As well as videos, Mr Scullion has created a number of online learning resources, including iQuizzes which promote independent assessment and Excel Databases which perform Scientific Calculations.
