The science centre in Pembroke recently organised the Scientix Seminar. The seminar engaged Mathematics teachers to explore the newly designed SEAC Maths Resource packs and share the positive experiences of educators planning mathematic activities within an applied setting. Ms. D. Scicluna Bugeja (Assistant Director – DLAP) welcomed the seminar participants and highlighted the educator’s pivotal role to adapt resources, thus facilitating students learning and achievements.
