SCIENCE IS PRIMARY CONFERENCE

Saturday, 10 March 2018

The conference includes 6 hours of high-quality professional development, including 1 keynote, discussions with a panel of experts, workshops and networking!

Opening keynote Megan Hayes, currently teaches at Mudgeeraba Creek SS; won the Peter Doherty award two years ago, BHP 2017 Teacher Award finalist & travelled to Japan last year as part of the ASTA Science Teachers Exchange.

‘As a classroom teacher who taught mainly in the lower Primary sector, I have always enjoyed teaching Science lessons as they were an opportunity to make learning hands on, fun & engaging. I am a visual learner & this type of lesson suited my teaching style. During my time at MCSS I became involved in running our school Science competition & things grew from there.’

MCSS have won the “best Overall Primary School” at Griffith University – Gold Coast Schools Science competition six years running & have had entries go into the BHP Billiton Competition through the STAQ Science Competition.
