The Manchester and District branch of the Institute of Physics and Manchester Metropolitan University will be holding their annual Secondary School Physics and Science Teachers’ Conference at the Manchester Lecture Theatre, Manchester Metropolitan University, on the 22 June 2012.
The conference, which is annually provided free to teachers, aims to share vision and enthusiasm in physics and science teaching for teachers working at Key Stage 4.
The days programme comprising a range of lectures, interactive workshops and displays provides updated information and material on a range of current developments in physics, forensics, biology, chemistry and environmental sciences.
This one day event offers a forum to reflect on current challenges in teaching physics and science at this key stage.
Presentations from local and national institutions and organisations will offer ideas and strategies to aid classroom teachers in preparing and presenting materials, as well as enabling teachers to share and reflect on their own classroom experiences and examples of good practice.
Details of the programme will be circulated to local authorities, schools and teacher training establishments within the next few weeks.
