Making a difference with modern materials
Making a difference with modern materials is the sixth in a series of events designed to improve teachers knowledge and understanding of the materials topics in the school curriculum.
This conference features presentations on emerging areas of materials, namely biomimicry, graphene, hydrogen, smart textiles and 3D printing. The sessions will be delivered by experts in their field and you will have an opportunity to develop ideas of how to use your new knowledge in the classroom.
Attendance is open to trainee and practicing teachers of STEM subjects and is FREE for members of the Schools Affiliate Scheme. There is no limit to the number of teachers that can attend from a particular school and registrations are on a first come first served basis.
The conference will take place at The Boilerhouse on 01 July and the deadline for registrations is 19 June.
