The 2018 QEST conference program is designed to support science laboratory staff and educators in the utilisation of STEM resources in the laboratory. Of key interest are practical experiences in line with the Australian curriculum and new senior science syllabus. Our inspiration this year is drawn from the Australian Science Week theme “Game changers and change makers” – we hope you likewise find inspiration in the wondrous technologies available to all of us.
With laboratory technician jobs being practical in nature, we aim to offer a majority of practical workshops to broaden laboratory skills as well as school safety issues and legislative requirments. We have also found that this experience and information is valuable to science teachers, increasing their practical skills in the class room.
