This Teacher Professional Development workshop forms part of an ARC Linkage Project (LP106101374: Community-based STEM professional learning for teachers of middle years) led by the University of Queensland. As part of your attendance at this workshop, your school will be approached with an offer to participate in the ARC Linkage research project.

The research project will assist us to assess the impact of the professional development we are providing, to continue to be able to provide similar workshops in the future, or to make improvements where needed.
