We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting a series of in-depth training sessions at our new premises in Knoxfield. We expect this will be a great opportunity for teachers and technicians to get a solid background in the topics being presented. The emphasis will be on explaining how our novel education resources can be used, and showing you the best way to prepare and integrate them with your science teaching activities.
Each session will run from 1:30pm to 4:00pm with refreshments, notes and product samples provided to all participants. A nominal charge of $28.00 payable by credit card, per person (payable at the time of booking) applies to cover catering and consumables. If your school does not have the flexibility of a credit card, please contact us to make an alternate arrangement. For these bookings the cost will be slightly higher, $38.00, to accommodate the extra processing work involved with a non-credit card transaction.
Our next training session will be held on Thursday, 24 May 2018, on the topic of Petrifilm and Microbiology.
Petrifilm plates are a variation on the agar Petri dishes that microbiologists are familiar with. The first part of this workshop will introduce you to Petrifilm so you become familiar with how it can be used. We will then proceed to carry out several experiments that make use of Petrifilm's ability to identify certain types of micro-organisms and quantify them. If you are looking for some new ideas for your experiments in microbiology, this workshop is for you.
This workshop is suitable for teachers and technicians.
