Thanks to our Ingenious funding, we are now working more closely with Jan Peters and Karen Dickens. Jan founded the Science Sisters project, which helped to inspire the School Gate SET, and Karen was one of the original members. They are both passionate about science and technology communication.
Jan and Karen will be helping to develop and deliver our confidence-building and training workshops for career-break parent volunteers. The workshops will be held in and around Hertfordshire and Dorset during the next academic year.
In the coming weeks, we will also be hosting a series of webinars, discussing the School Gate SET project and answering questions about how you can get involved. The schedule, so far, is:
Wed 29th June at 9:30am: Kate Bellingham talks to Jan Peters
‘Beyond ‘listening to readers’ – how I helped support STEM at my children’s school’
Wed 6th July at 10am: Kate Bellingham, Jan Peters, Karen Dickens, Helen Roberts
‘The School Gate SET FAQ’
If you can’t join in, live, recordings will be available afterwards on the Facebook page and blog.
