The focus on STEM skills from an early age will be increasingly important for Australia’s future, and STA is proud to have the chance to support the vital work of the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF).
Registrations for the NYSF National Science Teachers Summer School (NSTSS) are now open for January 2019.
This five-day professional development program offers an opportunity for secondary science teachers from across Australia to reinvigorate their love for science by gaining access to cutting-edge research and labs, while also connecting with other passionate teachers like themselves. This year, the program is also open to high school lab technicians.
The program will run twice, in two different locations in 2019. In Canberra, participants can join from 7-11 January at The Australian National University. Alternatively, the program will be running again in Brisbane, based at the University of Queensland, the following week from 14-18 January.
Participants will be exposed to pioneering research, and explore new methods of engaging students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
With the focus on STEM increasing in schools across the country, attending the NSTSS is an opportunity for both new and experienced teachers, and high school lab techs, to hear about the most up-to-date research in these fields, equipping them with the knowledge to not just teach their students, but to inspire them.
For more information about the program, or to register, head to the NYSF website.
The NYSF is a member of Science & Technology Australia and has been delivering inspiring programs to students and teachers since it was established in 1984.
