April 2013 - What’s happening?
There have been a few small changes within the PICSE UTAS office, hence for the slower than usual web updates. Recently Allison Lonergan took up another position within the University, and while I am pleased that Allison has found another positive direction to head, I am sad to loose someone with her wonderful professional attributes which she contributed to PICSE UTAS team. I wish her every success in her future position.
Gearing up for the Science and Engineering Investigation Awards:
First thing to notice is the slight name change of the Awards. We have included the discipline of ‘Engineering’ as one of our PICSE partner universities (University of Southern Queensland) is now hosted within the Faculty of Engineering.
As for the news about when the Science and Engineering Investigation Awards (SEIA) will be held:
Hobart Thursday 22nd August
Launceston Thursday 29th August
Cradle Coast Thursday 5th September
I have been contacted by a number of schools to come and do science visits. This is an exciting part of my job which I thoroughly enjoy doing. Please get in contact with me if you wish me to visit your class, or group of teachers – 6226 2618, or mobile 0409 336 721.
