This was a series of three, free linked professional development days for pairs of mathematics/science and mathematics/technology teachers in Cambridge during the academic years 20011/12.
Participants attended all three days. Each full-day event was a mixture of plenary sessions and intensive hands-on workshops.
The STEM Teacher Inspiration programme was delivered as three one-day events over the course of the following academic year - teachers accepted onto the programme attended all three days to provide a lasting, significant impact to teaching practice which can be shared amongst colleages in school and beyond.
The programme was aimed at teachers of mathematics and science at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and evolved in parallel with a new set of stem: secondary resources. The days were highly interactive and responded to the issues and concerns raised by teachers. The three days allowed science and mathematics teachers to explore ways in which they might work together
to enhance the experience of both mathematics and science for pupils. We believe that this was s a unique opportunity to engage in cutting-edge activity in schools!
