Michele and Gayle on the CIEC stand
CIEC were represented at the annual ASE conference in Reading by Gayle Pook and Michele Smale – and this year there were none of the usual worries about ice and snow!
Gayle delivered a talk entitled ‘How schools are using ambassadors to support KS3 Practical Science’ and Michele hosted a practical session on ‘Making Maths and Science Meaningful’ which explored opportunities to enhance science and maths through the use of real life contexts.
As the conference fell in the school holidays this year there seemed to be more teachers than usual who were able to attend. Michele and Gayle met numerous primary teachers during the 3 day event and were able to introduce many of them to the CIEC ethos of teaching science through real life, industrial contexts. And of course they met up with many old friends!
