What is #YorkTU?

The daytime event will be based on a Science TeachMeet. Anyone attending can do a short (5 to 10 minute maximum) presentation. This is informal and the subject matter can literally be anything you find interesting or pertinent and would like to share and discuss. If you would like to attend and just listen to speakers and meet other attendees then that’s fine too.

The event will be a fun and relaxed opportunity for people to chat, share ideas and good practice with those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled, a resource they love, a great website or activity - whatever you like! You can ask questions or simply turn up to soak up all the great ideas and enthusiasm.

The evening event will really be an opportunity to socialise and have fun, something we scientists are good at!

In 2012 we welcomed Science education professionals from across the UK -  it’s the perfect opportunity to put faces to twitter names!

Evening – bar food available at The Deramore Arms
