On Thursday, 4th December, the Australian Science Teachers' Association (the parent body of STAQ) hosted a Professional Development event in Townsville about Science Inquiry and using the recently launched Science ASSIST website. The initiative was sponsored by Northrop Grumman.
32 teachers from 14 schools attended the event and the professional development activities were described as "engaging and useful".
Thanks must go to Sarah Chapman for assisting with organising the event and connecting with schools in the local area to promote it. Also thanks to Townsville State High School for hosting it.
