The world’s first pop-up science school returns this November, promising even more inspiring talks and explosive ideas to fuel teachers’ lessons!
Organised by Twig World, this exciting teacher training opportunity will be taking place at the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and Imperial College London.
Rivalling the conventional conference by putting teachers back in the classroom, World Teach In offers two dynamic days of awe-inspiring CPD (continuing professional development). Last year’s event saw teachers from 17 countries travel to London to learn about how to bring the primary science curriculum to life.
This year, World Teach In invites both primary and secondary teachers, and the focus will be on STEM learning.
STEM for Schools 2015– Friday 20 November (secondary education)
At STEM for Schools 2015, secondary science teachers will be inspired by experts in STEM, take part in live experiments and lessons, and learn how to teach the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills needed to maintain the future of STEM industries.
Most crucially, delegates will get the support they need to integrate STEM into the science curriculum, and walk away with resources and ideas to fuel their lessons.
Reach Out CPD Live!– Saturday 21 November (primary education)
Reach Out CPD Live! will provide primary teachers with a range of innovative, cross-curricular ideas for teaching outstanding science lessons. The day is named after the hugely popular Reach Out CPD online training resource, developed by Tigtag in partnership with Imperial College London.
With speakers including Imperial College London’s Professor Maggie Dallman, the BBC’s Simon Baxter and science writer Marcus Chown, plus the chance to share best practice with teachers from around the world, World Teach In is a unique education event not to be missed!
For a taste of what’s in store, take a look at what MIT’s Tyler DeWitt got up to at last year’s World Teach In, as he tells the story of the B-Cell.
