Organisations whose target markets are either primary teachers or secondary
science teachers and/or students, are invited to nominate themselves to
present at the QAEC 2004. Presentation time slots are 40 minutes plus 10

QAEC 2004 attendees will be mostly primary and secondary teachers who have a

split evenly between the two sectors.
