ASE and Cumbria SLP TeachMeet - How do we inspire our students?

01 October 2019
14:45 - 17:00
Dallam School Haversham Site

Cumbria
LA7 7EH , United Kingdom

As we start the fourth year of teaching the latest specification of the Science GCSEs, this event is all about finding and sharing ideas that make science at KS3 and KS4 exciting and special.  This event will focus on Working Scientifically and Physics.

Event Type: 
TeachMeet
11-19 Teachers
North West (Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and Isle of Man)

There will be presentations to give you a range of ideas, but equally important there will be lots of time to share ideas with colleagues. If you would like to contribute with a short presentation of your own you will be very welcome so please contact ASE Field Officer, Pat Dower patdower@ase.org.uk

This Teachmeet is suitable for any Science teacher or Educator of students 11-16. We recognise that travel and timing can often be a challenge in Cumbria, but are keen to not let that get in the way. We hope that your SLTs recognise the value of subject-specific CPD and networking and so will support you to leave school a little bit early to attend the event!

We are delighted that Data Harvest will be providing some data logging equipment as a prize draw in a raffle at the TeachMeet and also everyone attending can enter for the big end of year draw for an even bigger prize!
