The STEM Professional Development Conference days aim to develop participant confidence with regards to knowledge and skills in the areas of cutting-edge STEM and science education in order to enhance student engagement and learning outcomes in the classroom setting. The days can be attended in conjunction or singly, as the program changes daily. Open to all primary and secondary teachers, Heads of Department and Scientific Operations Officers.
The keynote will be the 2017 NSW Scientist of the Year - Professor Gordon Wallace
Prof Wallace is a leading scientist in the field of nanotechnology in conjunction with organic conductors to create new materials for energy conversion and storage as well as medical bionics.
Attendees then choose to attend three interactive conference sessions or tours in a STEM field of their choice, before the day wraps up with a closing speaker. Science exhibitors will be available during lunch for attendees to peruse and networking opportunites will be abundant.
It is a fantastic way to end the year being inspired by the Cutting-Edge STEM developments that are happening right now at Griffith University and world-wide through industry and other collaborations. Take away a swathe of stories to inspire your classrooms and schools next year and see how you may be able to implement some of these new technologies and collaborations into your own teaching.
