Pfizer Breakthrough Science curriculum resources

Breakthrough Science has been developed by science teachers from Academies Enterprise Trust, in collaboration with The Careers & Enterprise Company, the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and Pfizer to connect your students with the power of science.

They are free digital resources for teachers and their students in KS3 & 4 and cover four key science topics from the science curriculum.  Applicable across specifications, but based on the AQA GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy (8464) Specification.  There are four topics: Separating techniques, acids and bases, clinical trials and testing for purity.  Each lesson has both curriculum and careers learning objectives and is accompanied by a lesson slide deck and teacher guide.

You can also access Pfizer’s Science Stories video series and incorporate this into your teaching.  There are ten 2 minute videos that give a snapshot of the diverse stories, skills and career journeys of the people working at Pfizer and the NIHR.  You can access the playlist here or scroll down to learn how the videos can link with your Breakthrough Science lessons.
