Skills [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]


Dear Townsville STEMhub,

The Questacon Smart Skills Program is touring in the North Queensland region 
during Term 2, 2018. In addition to presenting in-school STEM workshops for 
students we will also be conducting FREE STEM based professional learning 
workshops for teachers. Questacon Smart Skills teacher workshops are FREE, 
90-minute workshops for secondary teachers of science, design & technology, 
mathematics and interested Year 6 teachers. The workshops focus on inquiry 
learning, innovative thinking and hands-on prototyping.

[cid:image003.jpg@01D3EE89.16882DF0]Teacher Workshop 1 looks specifically at 
earthquakes - we will first construct a small shake table out of simple 
materials to simulate an earthquake, and then build tower structures which will 
have their strength and integrity tested atop the shake table. A simple phone 
app is used to measure the magnitude of our 'earthquakes' and investigate a 
number of open-ended investigations and construction options. This highly 
collaborative workshop is intentionally open-ended and can be applied across 
the Australian curriculum including design, earth science, physics, or maths 
lessons. It is the first in a series of three workshops; the remainder of the 
opt-in follow-up sessions are conducted via video link throughout the rest of 
the calendar year.
We encourage teachers to join us at one of our Townsville workshops, and share 
with others you know in these locations across North Queensland. Registrations 
close next week.

Informal education providers are also welcome - give us a call if you'd like to 
chat about suitability.

The date, time and location of each workshop appear in the table below. Follow 
the corresponding link to book the workshop you wish to attend.
