The Association for Science Education conference will take place on the 5th June at St. Mary’s University College in Belfast.  With 30 workshops and lectures, this provides excellent CPD opportunities for all those involved in Science Education.  For physics teachers, a highlight of the conference will be the Frontier Lecture given by Prof Alan Fitzsimmons, who will use his experience with the Rosetta comet mission to relate this cutting edge research to teaching the GCSE physics specification.  The ‘space’ theme will continue with Eleanor Edwards presenting a workshop on how she provides stretch and challenge to year 10 pupils using GCSE Astronomy, while Robert Hill’s workshop will provide technicians with a variety of activities to support the teaching of space topics.
Other workshops of particular interest to physics teachers will be IOP’s “What Happens Next? Creative Thinking Skills”, “iPad in Science” presented by iTeach and “Differentiation through collaborative learning” delivered by Gill Gunnill of National Science Learning Centre.
Technicians who support physics teaching will also find an excellent range of workshops with “Don't buy it, make it” given by Jane Major of CLEAPSS, “pHenzied pHysics” by Helen Rose of National Science Learning Centre and “Radiation Protection” by Dawn Kerr, EANI.
The cost for the conference, including lunch and coffee, is excellent value at £40 for ASE members and £50 for non-members.   To register, contact ASE region secretary Lorna Monroe lornamonroe@yahoo.co.uk.  For more details of the workshops visit the ASE website at http://www.ase.org.uk/ase-regions/northern-ireland/
