Module 5 - Identification
Film 5 - Celebrities including Sir Richard Branson, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom and Maggie Aderin-Pocock-Pocock join expert teachers from two world leading dyslexia schools to share their wisdom and expertise in these inspirational Dyslexia Awareness Training films produced by Made By Dyslexia. Millfield School UK and Schenck School USA are both pioneers in the field of dyslexia and the first schools in their respective countries to successfully support dyslexic students and focus on dyslexic strengths. These films have been incorporated into 5 Dyslexia Awareness Training modules designed to help teachers, educators and parents understand dyslexia, both its strengths and challenges, gain essential knowledge in how to recognise and support it, and create a dyslexia inclusive classroom. Modules 5 - 10 will be released later this year.

Beautiful equations: E=mc² explained in two minutes
There’s beauty in simplicity. For space scientist and Sky At Night host Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock, there’s nothing more beautiful than the way that Einstein’s theory of special relativity unlocks our understanding of how energy, mass and the speed of light work in the universe.

Space scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock explains why being different is no barrier to success if you are passionate about something. As a dyslexic child, Maggie found reading and writing in school difficult. Nonetheless, it was a book that changed her life. On its cover was an astronaut. As soon as Maggie saw that picture of a man floating without gravity in his amazing suit, she craved more information about space. Driven by a desire to understand how the universe worked, she studied science and went on to make new discoveries about space on her own. Maggie describes how she worked hard to overcome stereotypes by staying true to her goal. Despite not fitting the common image of a ‘serious, white male scientist’, she made it. Her message to others is simple: "Believe in yourself, and you can achieve so much.” This clip is from the BBC series Spark. Spark is a collection of short films about ambition and work aimed at 9 to 14-year-olds that encourages them to think about what they might do and who they might become.

For Class Clips users, the original reference for the clip was p00zy7lf. =====================
Teaching Modern Studies or Physics? This clip could be used as a discussion starter. What are the ethical implications of sending people into space? Can we justify the hundreds of millions of pounds often spent on satellites? Use Maggie's answers in the clip as prompts for a debate on science funding to fit in with SMSC part of the syllabus. The lesson could be expanded to include the Large Hadron Collider. It can also be used in Science Week for prompts on careers in science and women in science. This clip will be relevant for teaching Modern Studies and Physics at KS2 and KS3 in England and Wales, and 2nd level in Scotland. =====================

'STEM for ALL' - Dr. Maggie Aderin Pocock - WISE 2013 Focus
Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock started her journey in Science Communication from the standpoint of wanting to encourage more youth (especially girls) to consider jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). However, over the years her emphasis on youth has changed to include a much more general audience for three reasons. First, the older generation still has great influence over young people and, if you captivate the parents, the children will often follow. Second, STEM is very much part of our lives. To use it to its true potential, it is vital to understand its scope and limitations. Lastly, STEM practitioners need to be guided ethically and responsibly by the public, but to do this effectively society needs to be STEM literate.

Inspiring scientists: Maggie Aderin-Pocock's story
Inspiring scientists: Maggie Aderin-Pocock speaks about her life as a scientist. This series of video interviews by the Royal Society celebrates the diversity of British science in partnership with National Life Stories at the British Library. You may have seen Maggie Aderin-Pocock presenting BBC's The Sky at Night, asking Jeremy Paxman to hold a torch while she described a lunar eclipse, or on the sofa of a breakfast television show or The One Show talking enthusiastically about science. You may not know that she has hung out of the back of military aircraft photographing the vapour trails of missiles to improve fighter aircraft 'countermeasures', that she has improved metal detectors used to find unexploded mines, or that she has led projects to make instruments placed on telescopes or satellites to inspect the Earth and the Universe. You may also not know that she was born in London to parents who emigrated from Nigeria in the 1950s, that she was inspired by Einstein, the Clangers and Star Trek, and that she has, at times, struggled with reading and writing due to dyslexia. This is Maggie's story. To find out more about the Royal Society's work in diversity and this project visit: https://royalsociety.org/policy/projects/leading-way-diversity/inspiring-scientists/
