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.
Ms. Katya Borg and Mr. Martin Galea shared their positive experiences of using the SEAC resource packs in year 9 and year 10 classes.
Mr. Mario Muscat (EO – Integrated Science) delivered a presentation related to the Scientix network and encouraged seminar participants to browse the Scientix portal to discover a range of shared teaching tools and STEM projects.
During the second part of the seminar, the participants engaged in hands-on workshops to discuss and use a range of activities from the resource packs. Educators are encouraged to browse the Scientix website www.scientix.eu or contact the Science Centre for further information related to forthcoming initiatives and seminars.
