EU-UNAWE: “Discovering Our Place in the Universe”

Date: Tuesday 14th May 2013

Time: 09:15 AM to 03:15 PM

Location : Glyndwr University Conf Services, St Asaph Business Park, St Asaph LL17 0DJ

The course is aimed at practising primary teachers and this is the first time it has been offered to teachers in Wales.  I include an outline programme for the day and hope that you will be able to attend.  We have a limit of 16 places therefore a waiting list will be maintained for any future dates. The course may be cancelled if less than 12 people apply.  Only one applicant per school please and ideally the Science/WAU co-ordinator teaching the upper age group should apply.

If required, the Armagh Observatory will supply sub cover for you (a flat rate of £160) and lunch will be provided. If you wish to attend please reply directly to me using my email address :  I would be grateful if you would copy the following text into your reply:

• I wish to attend the EU-UNAWE course on Tuesday14th May in Glyndwr University • Your full name (for certificate) • Your preferred email address • Your school name and full address • Whether you are the Science Co-ordinator and the Key Stage/Class that you normally teach • If you have any special dietary requirements

I will acknowledge all replies on Monday 29th April to confirm your place and will attach the sub cover form for claiming back the £160. We reimburse this after you attend (to the school bank details that you supply on the sub cover form). Please let me know at any point if you are then unable to attend and I can contact any teachers still on a waiting list.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you,

EU-UNAWE UK is part of a European educational project with its UK centre based at Armagh Observatory. We aim to use the beauty and splendour of the Universe to inspire young children (4 to 11 year olds) and especially those from an underprivileged background to become more interested in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). We also aim to broaden their minds and stimulate a sense of belonging to a wider international European and worldwide community.
