TEMI National Conference

The TEMI project formally finishes at the end of July 2016. The UL team is holding a TEMI National Conference on Tuesday June 7th in UL. This will give an opportunity to bring back TEMI teachers from all 6 cohorts to meet each other but also to share their work with other science teachers and stakeholders. The conference will include talks on showmanship by Paul McCrory and Tilman Andris and a Science Fair, where the TEMI teachers will display their work.

A limited number of spaces will be available for teachers who have not been part of the project.  If you are interested in attending please send an email to Peter Childs at peter.childs@ul.ie. There is no charge for the conference, which will run from 10 am to 4 pm in the Main Building at UL. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

At the end of the project the teaching resources created by the Irish team and the TEMI teachers will be made available on Google Drive to all interested science teachers – you will just have to register on the site. Details will be given at the conference and in the next issue of SCIENCE and Chemistry in Action! and on the EPI*STEM website. The UL team is also planning to offer TEMI Workshops to ISTA Branches in the next school year as part of our dissemination process.
