CCEA attended the world's first international primary science education conference, which took place at the Waterfront Hall from 9-11 June.
The conference organised by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT), was designed to break down any boundaries that stand in the way of excellent primary science teaching. It celebrated excellence in the teaching and learning of primary science across the world.
Delegates took part in a wide range of workshops led by outstanding educators. Speakers included clinical anatomist Professor Alice Roberts, Dr Stuart Brown, Professor Danielle George and the BBC's `face of space' scientist and broadcaster, Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock.
Melanie Mulligan, CCEA Education Manager, said:
"We had a fantastic response at the conference, which provided us with the opportunity to meet key people with an interest in primary science and establish contacts. We had time to meet with delegates, sharing and discussing resources and support available from CCEA.
With the Department of Education’s focus on improving learner’s experiences in primary science and recent publications from for example, ETI, this was a timely event for CCEA to attend".
