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.
This Top Tip comes from Tamara Daus, Science Operations Officer at Kingston State High School, in August 2013. Thank you, Tamara! This is a specimen we don’t see enough of in schools and the collective wisdom of lab techs is the best source of info for others to learn from. images courtesy T Daus
Semen from Dissection Connection, new digital microscope… Movies worked really well too
I’m taking the semen into the first Year 8 classes tomorrow. We’ll be able to have the digital microscope up the front with the image on the SmartBoard for the whole class to see, and then the groups will be able to use their own microscopes to focus and check out their own slides.
