We’re planning a Science in the Pub series!
The Coffs Coast Regional Science Hub (CCRSH) joins other Regional Science Hubs around the country doing great things in connecting communities with science for a sustainable future.
Through this Hub, we endeavour to bring together arts, festivals, libraries, cinemas, scientists, councils, venues and work together to bridge the gap between science and society.
This strategy is based on a “national framework-local action” approach. Science Hubs provide the grassroots, ground up means of achieving impact by facilitating the delivery of science outreach programs at a local level.
About the Meet-Up
Whilst the meet-ups are a great opportunity to promote existing events / initiatives happening, let’s keep the focus on areas for collaboration – working together and sharing resources, and to start planning new events.
Events involve three stages – Planning, Implementation and Evaluation. Please note that partnership/collaboration doesn’t need to look like all organisations being involved at every stage of the event. This helps us realise we can collaborate on events without taking on the whole undertaking of the event.
Feel free to bring flyers of existing events you are hosting to share with the group, but let’s not speak at length to these.
A topic we flagged at the last meet-up was creating a Science in the Pub bimonthly event series. Please bring ideas of scientists or venues for this! Perhaps we can tie this in with the Pint of Science Festival next May?
After this meet-up, we plan to join in on the STEM Academy Networking Event, 5-6.30pm, also at the Coffs Ex Services Club.
The University of Sydney STEM Teacher Enrichment Academy has launched its program for primary schools in Coffs Harbour in February. 60 teachers have participated in the professional learning program and attended a two-day session in February, with a follow-up two-day session in June. Click here to find out which schools in your area are involved in the program.
A networking event is organised as part of the follow-up session in June, with the aim of bringing together industry and local community members who have keen interest in STEM education and can help support teachers in delivering innovative and inspiring ways of teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics in their classrooms.
