The UK space education office (ESERO-UK) is holding a conference to inspire science teachers to use space as a context to enrich the teaching of biology, chemistry and physics. It aims to support secondary science teachers through keynote lectures from high profile speakers, incorporating links to the new proposed curriculum, and a series of hands on, practical sessions designed to inform, inspire and support.
The event will be held at the National STEM Centre, University of York, 2-3 July 2013. Attendanceis free of charge and includes food, accommodation and a £70 travel bursary for teachers.
The organisers describe the conference as an opportunity to discover contemporary science resources and support that is available to enrich science teaching, talk to teachers about their experiences of using space as a context for teaching science, and hear about the latest developments in the new draft science curriculum in England.
