National Science Week starts on the 20th of August and to celebrate, teachers are going on an excursion to be students of science for the day!
Primary and High School teachers will attend as well as students studying science education. This unique professional development opportunity has been condensed into one action packed day with sessions based on Field Science, Science Technology, Healthy Waterways, Harbour Heroes, Turtles, Science speed dating and information happy hour.
CQU Researcher Dr Linda Pfeiffer urges all teachers who attended last year’s event to update and build on their current knowledge by returning again this year. “We”l look at a number of topics from water quality to robotics, and use field excursion and storytelling to teach scientific concepts.” said Dr Pfeiffer.
This learning opportunity is on Coin Island and costs $75 per participant, which includes all of the day’s activities, full catering (morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea), a resource booklet, professional development certificate and networking evening.
If you’d like to book as a teacher or student visit seegladstone.eventbrite.com.au or contact Lyndal on 4978 1389.
