Aiming for excellence in STEM learning and teachingMonday 25 June, 2012
As part of the networking event, over 80 local careers and science teachers and 71 local STEM ambassadors were invited to take part in various networking activities which allowed teachers to meet scientists and engineers who can help them in both careers and science events and activities in school.
The event was introduced by John Murray from the Education and Training Inspectorate and provided recent case studies, networking activities and opportunities to find out how the STEM Ambassadors programme has been utilised by both Area Learning Communities and individual schools to help support and embed STEM careers and STEM teaching in schools. It also provided opportunities for the teachers to meet a wide range of active STEM Ambassadors from business and industry through a series of networking events.
