Block out the 7 & 8 April on your calendar because we’re bringing you a couple of days of serious science fun.Mr Vivi and I received such a warm welcome in Mackay on our way to Cairns last year that we’ve gathered up some mates and are taking them back with us this year.For anyone in North Queensland this is an ideal opportunity to get good quality PD right in your own backyard, so please join us and encourage your colleagues to come along too.

If you don’t live near Mackay then consider joining us for a couple of days professional development and a tropical getaway anyway. These dates are just before Term 2 goes back and it’s a really lovely time of year to be in North Queensland.

Please share this invitation with your local network as well by clicking on forward to a friend below. The proposed list of workshops is below and they have been chosen because they will be worthwhile for lab technicians, primary and secondary teachers, pre-service teachers and home schooling parents.

New upload over on my YouTube channel!  This one comes is timelapse over 80mins of the white blood cells of a mouse attacking a parasite via University of California San Francisco.  There’s more detail in this article.

And the beginning of a new playlist, too.  Your immune system is pretty cool.

I wish I could say that I had put together this gif myself using our simulated blood powder, but I was pointed towards it on Twitter this weekend. It’s going to make a great prac in your classroom, though. Let me know if you need a blood powder top up. One sachet makes a litre so it lasts for ages.
