Event Details

The annual conference of QEST is especially tailored to meet the professional development needs of science staff in education facilities and the delivery of successful practical experiences for students.

The ConQEST committee has taken great care in putting together this program so as it meets the needs of all our peers, from the new recruits to the highly experienced.  School Laboratory Technicians and Science teachers alike, will have opportunity to experience practical workshops and information sessions that are directly related to school curriculum and the ability to deliver successful practical experiences to students that enhance their learning.

ConQEST is traditionally held on the first Monday and Tuesday of the Queensland June school holidays, this year being 1st and 2nd July.  We are thankful for the generosity and support of our host, The University of Queensland Gatton Campus, where the event is held.
