Building Capacity, Sharing Experiences
The aim of the conference is for participants to engage in first-hand experiences that exemplify best practice in science education. Ideally our early career teachers will walk away with a deeper understanding of the science curriculum and will have broadened their skills and resources with which to engage their students in learning. The Conference will include specialised workshops for both Primary and Secondary Teachers
