|Science Teachers Forum|
The Science Teachers' Forum is an open forum aimed at senior grade educators of science, technology, biology, geography and mathematics. The educators meet to share their ideas and discuss issues and difficulties encountered in the classroom. Selected purveyors of school-related science educational aids are also invited to demonstrate their latest equipment available in the market.
All grade 9, 10, 11 and 12 science, technology, life science, geography and maths educators are invited to attend. This open forum aims to enhance science teaching in a most applicable and practical way.
The sessions cover a variety of topics, but each will be different. Educators may attend as many sessions as they are able to.
Selected purveyors of science educational aides are also invited to demonstrate the latest equipment available in the market.
Where: Johannesburg Observatory, 18A Gill St, Observatory, Johannesburg.
Future meetings: Meetings take place on the last Saturday of every month, with the exception of those that fall in the school holidays. However, depending on the availability of teachers due to examinations and marking, the October Forum might be our last one for 2010. We will continue with these meetings in January 2011.
