Congratulations to the teachers of science from across Australia who will be attending the National Science Teachers’ Summer School (NSTSS) in January 2014.
Teachers spend a week networking and talking
Teachers spend a week on campus at the ANU, networking, talking to leading science researchers and this year, will meet with Richard Johnson – one of the winners of the Prime Minister’s Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching.
Damien Pearce, Director of NYSF, says that the synergies between quality teaching and learning of science, technology and maths are reflected in the close relationship between NYSF and ASTA, and has resulted in this collaboration, along with the ANU, to deliver the summer school for teachers.
“The NTSS is probably unique in the opportunity it offers for teachers of science at both the primary and secondary level to network, and exchange experiences. We can’t wait to hear about what they learn in January.”
