Please forward to your technician and teacher networks.
Dear Catalist Members,
This November ECU is delighted to be hosting Mr Tim Harrison, Bristol ChemLabS Teacher Fellow and Science Communicator in Residence at Bristol University in the UK.  Tim is a very entertaining presenter who roams the world communicating science - from teaching in Queensland schools to his vast outreach programme at Bristol University, even as an advisor to famous maverick TV chef Heston Blumenthal!
During his stay, Mr Harrison will be running a FREE chemistry PD workshop for school laboratory technicians and science teachers.
This is an open invitation to register for one of four sessions:

Dates: Tuesday November 25 or Wednesday November 26, 2014
Times: 10am-12noon or 1-3pm
Venue: Building 19 chemistry teaching labs, Building 19, Edith Cowan University Joondalup campus, 270 Joondalup Drive in Joondalup WA 6027 (map and travel directions provided upon registration)
Cost: FREE
Light lunch and science resources provided.

Please note that this is substantially the same workshop that Tim presented at ECU in 2010.  Preference will be given to applicants from nearby schools who have not attended before, though others are welcome to apply in case there are spare places.  Parking will be at a premium and we strongly recommend taking public transport, details supplied upon registration.
Numbers are strictly limited so please e-mail your preferred day/s and timeslot/s in order of preference to me at n.bordas at ecu.edu.au<mailto:n.bordas at ecu.edu.au> ASAP to book your place.  Registration closes 5pm Friday 14 November 2014.
This is a great opportunity to meet an international science communicator, experience some useful chemistry demonstrations, network with other school science professionals and see our ECU chemistry facilities.  Highly recommended!

In science,
Nardia Bordas
