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.
Sign up to the conference newsletter now to hear the Squeal from Miss Vivi when the full program is published and registration opens.

Do you recognise this masked man?
We’re proud to announce that this science superhero is our new demonstrator for Far North Queensland, Dave Sellick!
Dave comes armed with over 10 years experience in school labs, most recently at St Augustines College in Cairns. He will be available to run PD sessions for you on any of the workshops we have ready to go at Dissection Connection and Rockhoundz.
Because he’s superhuman Dave will be holding down his full time job at St Augustines and presenting workshops for us outside of his usual work hours. Just like Clark Kent 🙂
So, if you’re in professional development distress then send up the bat signal and Dave will come to your rescue. He’ll be like a neuron transmitting vital information between a distal section and the core of the Vivi-beast. At the moment we have workshops prepared on plucks, hearts, piglets, toads, heads, eyes, reproduction, microfossils and geology experiments.
And if you think you’ve got what it takes to be a Science Superhero in your area then show us the colour of your cape.
