ACE day at ASE

Straight back into teaching after a great Christmas break, Amy McDowall and I conducted a session for international delegates at the The Annual Conference of the Association for Science Education (ASE) yesterday. This fabulous conference is currently taking place at Liverpool University and offers a unique opportunity for all teachers of science to develop practical ideas as well as providing a useful insight into some cutting-edge research.

Amy co-ordinates all our Primary learning at the Museum. She is super enthusiastic, and also being extremely organised kindly made all the arrangements for us to attend and contribute to this years conference programme, which runs over 4 days.  Yesterday was a great day for us both, not only being able to jointly contribute and meet like-minded delegates from far away as Australia, but also providing us with new ways of developing our animal-based science sessions back at the museum.

Two such programmes, our Rainforest Investigators and Habitat Explorers sessions for primary schools, we combined and showcased for the delegates yesterday – and had them fully participating in our sustainability and amphibian conservation-focused workshop. It went down very well and was enjoyed by all involved – and we are already looking forward to supporting this great event again in the future!
