This year teachers from as far as Australia attended our sessions at this year's ASE conference. It was lovely to discuss science with teachers from all over the world and find a common understanding and enthusiasm for primary science.A particular highlight was the AZSTT Primary Science Teacher Awards. Six awards were presented to teachers from across the UK. The CIEC team were delighted to see Nina Spilsbury, Malcolm Sargent Primary School, collect her award. Nina has worked closely with the CIEC team, through the National Science Learning Centre, to promote and develop science in her school. Prize winners received a cheque for £1,000 for the teacher and a cheque for £1,000 for the school – plus a certificate and ASE Membership for one year for the teacher.
