#008 - Welcome to the The NatMatSci Podcast, brought to you by The National Mathematics & Science College. This is the podcast to let you find out more about NatMatSci by hearing staff and students talking about their experiences, all unscripted and unplugged, so that you can hear what life is really like at the college.
Today we’re talking to Dr Steve Appleyard, Head of Biology at the college. We’re about to find out how Steve got into teaching, what his own experience of school was like, which elements of biology he loves teaching and which elements he sees the students there loving to learn. But he also talks about how teaching biology at the college is a different experience to teaching at any other college in the UK, so stick around to see what that might be. Come with me now as we listen to Dr Steve Appleyard.
