Teachers will ‘go back to school’ at a two-day international science festival hosted by Imperial College Professors Robert Winston and Maggie Dallman.
World Teach In will feature a range of practical lessons and projects for primary and secondary school teachers, held at Imperial College London, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum on November 20th and 21st.
Educators from across the globe will hear from the biggest names in science and take home full lesson plans and equipment for use in the classroom.
“World Teach In is a fantastic event that brings teachers together, to share best practice and understand how they can work together to make education better around the world,” commented Maggie Dallman, Associate Provost, Imperial College London.
Other speakers include BBC Earth Producer Simon Baxter, scientist and TV presenter Stefan Gates and writer and broadcaster Marcus Chown.
“As teachers we have the most important occupation of all,” said Prof Winston. “The future of our society depends on the thinking and the attitudes of the next generation.”
The event is being hosted by Twig World, the company behind online training resource Reach Out CPD, developed in partnership with Imperial College London.
