Sue McGrath IOP Physics Teachers Network Coordinator
Sue will introduce the session by reviewing the resources available to teachers through the IOP.
An open session will identify other resources (e.g. STFC, Sentinus and QUB), with the aim of producing a useful list to forward to all conference
delegates. Finally we will breakup into smaller groups over coffee/tea for small group discussions and networking.
