Event description

Description

The Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society would like to extend an invitation to primary and secondary school teachers and careers advisors to participate in our national conference in 2018. This international conference will be attended by over 500 scientists from around Australia and overseas to present the latest research in meteorology, oceanography and climate science with a strong focus on the Southern Hemisphere.

An Education and Outreach Open Day is being held on Friday 9th February, 2018 to foster discussions and networking opportunities between scientists, academics and teachers. There will be opportunity for teachers to also attend keynote addresses, plenaries and various scientific sessions throughout the day to get their finger on the pulse of current research. The afternoon session includes a panel on non-linear career paths in science followed by a CSIRO STEM Professionals in Schools workshop.

Teachers and careers advisors can register for free using the register link at the top of this page using their school or education email address. Visit the conference webpage https://www.amos-icshmo2018.com.au for more information on the conference.

Unfortunately, AMOS cannot cover teaching relief costs for teachers attending the conference.

This Open Day is part of the AMOS-ICSHMO 2018.
