Knowing, understanding and doing science

Knowledge on its own isn’t enough; it’s the understanding of the science content that brings it to life.

This conference is aimed at teachers in the first five years of teaching science/STEM or those new to a specialist science or STEM role.

This conference is an opportunity for early career and pre-service teachers to be involved in interactive learning activities that deepen your understanding of the science content and gives you the skills and resources to engage your students in learning.

The Program includes specialised workshops for both Primary and Secondary Teachers.

This hands-on interactive professional learning day will cater specifically for each level of schooling.

Morning Tea and lunch will be provided and there will also be a chance to network with other teachers and the presenters at the HAPPY HOUR!!!

Teachers will receive a certificate of attendance that details the hours of professional learning and Standard 2 Focus Areas 2.1 and 2.2, Standard 3 Focus Area 3.2, Standard 6 Focus Area 6.2 and Standard 7 Focus Area 7.4
