Science Teachers Workshop

November 2020
These professional development courses are suitable for high school science teachers of all levels – whether you’re just starting out, teaching in a new area, or have years of experience – our program has something for you.

We are excited to be offering the highly successful Science Teachers’ Workshop again this year which will run across multiple science disciplines over a one-week period. 

Workshop disciplines include Agriculture, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, and Physics. Each discipline can be separately registered for, and typically host content from 9am-4pm over one or two days. Costs per day in 2018 were typically $220 (inc GST) per teacher.
