Summer conferences here we come!

This summer the schools team at Practical Action will be attending three great conferences to promote our resources.

The Eco-Schools Show is the single largest sustainable schools event in England, attracting almost 3000 attendees.  Held on the 26th June at the Sheffield Arena it will be the first time we have attended.  We are looking forward to introducing a new audience of teachers to our work.

Then on 5th and 6th of July I will be at the ASE National Technicians’ conference in York.  We know how influential science technicians can be in what gets taught in schools and have received some really good feedback from them in the past.  Many technicians are now getting involved in setting up STEM (science , technology , engineering and maths) clubs and find our STEM challenges are perfect  activities for their clubs.

On 6th and 7th  of July (early July is a busy time for us!) my colleague Bren will be at the DATA conference in Keele University.  Our sustainability materials are very well respected within the D &T community and this year we have a fresh new look to the D&T area of our website making it much easier to find resources. In addition we have a range of new eco-tools to help students assess the sustainability of existing products or their own projects

Please do book your place at one of these conferences and come and say hello to us.  We will have lots of posters and inspiring ideas for you to take away.
