Choose your PD, choose your day. Eight different workshops presented over 3 days (after school).
How to get away with murder: hands on toad euthanasia workshop using the current approved CO2 protocol, includes a dissection.
Rock identification, “Rocks you know you know”. Discover your own secret knowledge of rocks
Use local foraminifera as a tool to teach sorting techniques, biological terminology and the use of a dichotomous key for identification. See how modern day species compare to 8000 year old microfossils (byo stereo microscope essential).
On the 7th & 8th April we’re bringing you a couple of days of serious science fun. Miss Vivi and I received such a warm welcome in Mackay on our way to Cairns last year that we’ve gathered up some mates and are taking them back with us this year. For anyone in North Queensland this is an ideal opportunity to get good quality PD right in your own backyard, so please join us and encourage your colleagues to come along too.
If you don’t live near Mackay then consider joining us for a couple of days professional development and a tropical getaway anyway. These dates are just before Term 2 goes back and it’s a really lovely time of year to be in North Queensland.

The proposed list of workshops is below and they have been chosen because they will be worthwhile for lab technicians, primary and secondary teachers, pre-service teachers and home schooling parents.
