Atlantic Conference 2011
The Atlantic Conference 2011 takes place tomorrow in the Tullamore Court Hotel, Tullamore Co. Offaly. Organised by Atlantic Corridor, the conference will explore a variety of issues surrounding the development and promotion of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education. The conference promises to be an informative and enlivening event with a great range of key speakers from Ireland, the UK and the US, helping to develop a lively and stimulating forum for debate. The key theme to be addressed is – how can educators inspire students to engage with science, technology, engineering and maths? Amongst the speakers are Ben Goldacre (author of Bad Science), Michael John Gorman (founding director of the wonderful Science Gallery) and Patrick Cunningham (Chief Science Advisor to the Government). Frog Blogger Humphrey Jones will be in attendance and will be tweeting on the events throughout the day.
