Teaching the Teachers
Published on 30 August 2016
Local educators are being invited along to a free Educators Evening at Dundee Science Centre next month, with a sneak preview of some mind-blowing new science activities to take back to the classroom.
The event, which will take place from 4.30 to 7.00pm on Thursday 8 September 2016, is open to Primary, Secondary and Home Educators in the Tayside and Fife areas.
Guests can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and snacks while meeting other educators and watch explosive demonstrations from Dundee Science Centre’s brand new workshops, with the chance to test their own paper rockets, drive a Lego Mindstorms robot, or extract some of their own DNA.
The event will also inform educators about funding, booking procedures and classroom support, while unveiling some of the exciting activities on offer during November’s Dundee Science Festival.
Simon Reynolds, Science Learning Manager at Dundee Science Centre said, “Having recently revamped our learning programme, with some updated and brand new workshops, we are delighted to be showcasing this diverse offering to local educators. We are also looking forward to sharing our plans for the new Science Learning Institute space which will be created as part of Dundee Science Centre’s expansion plans, which will open up a huge new range of courses and activities for teachers to take part in.”
