Science in the City is the biggest National Science Week celebration of science for schools. Taking over Australian Museum from 6-15 August 2019 with interactive workshops, shows, and a speciality Expo, Science in the City also offers community and teacher activities as part of its 2019 program.

Teacher Professional Development night

This NESA-accredited Teacher PD will contribute 1 hour and 30 minutes of NESA Registered Professional Development. Hear from NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer Professor Hugh Durrant-Whyte and experience hands-on science fun with demonstrations by Fizzics Education.

With quick-fire, TeachMeet style presentations, this event will bring together teachers (science and non-science alike, across K-12) to share experiences, innovative practices and new ideas in teaching. This is a fantastic opportunity to network and share ideas and be inspired.
