Page history last edited by Pat Dower 4 years, 4 months ago


ASE Durham STEM TeachMeet, Framwellgate School.

Focus on STEM.


Tuesday 5th July 2016. Refreshments from 17:30; TeachMeet 18:00 till - 19:30; followed by BBQ and social.

Location: The Sjovoll Centre, Front Street, Pity Me, Durham, DH1 5BZ


What is a TeachMeet? 

It is an informal and enjoyable gathering of those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, a teaching resource they love, a great website, a classroom activity - whatever you like with a link to STEM. ASE focuses on science education in its broadest sense and so embraces maths and engineering as well. At this TeachMeet we want to encourage maths and science teachers to share ideas about how to complement what what they each do, especially in relation to the new GCSE's. We also really keen that teachers can give and share ideas about how to develop pupils' STEM skills and STEM careers awareness. You can ask questions or simply turn up to soak up all the great ideas and enthusiasm.  It is about being engaged and inspired by our immediate colleagues and gaining a lot of of networking to boot! 


What is special about this event?

Following the TeachMeet there will be social and BBQ - a big thanks to Framwellgate school who are hosting the event AND providing food.



What can you do?

You can just come along and be a member of the audience if you like, you can give a five minute presentation on one of your favourite science teaching ideas, or on an aspect of classroom science teaching. You don't have to be an ASE member, but if you're not, we might try to persuade you to join!
