If you are a science teacher seeking an exciting and hands-on professional development opportunity then OUASSA has just the opportunity for you.
Every year in January and July OUASSA runs Teacher Workshops alongside our student science camps. While the workshops are targeted at teachers from schools who have students enrolled for OUASSA, teachers from other schools are more than welcome.
Teacher workshops cost $450, this covers both January and July workshops and we cover your travel, accomodation and meal costs.

Winter Teacher Workshop: Tues 11th - Fri 14th July 2017

2017 Summer Teacher Workshop
Alongside the summer student program OUASSA also ran the first of this year's Teacher Workshops, to help support teachers in their Science classroom teaching. Teachers attended hands-on full-day lab sessions in Chemistry, Physics, Genetics/Biochemistry, as well as seminars and shorter sessions in Lab Safety, Sport and Exercise Science, and Ag@Otago.
To break up the busy schedule teachers also attended a tour and dinner at the Royal Albatross Centre at Taiaroa Head.
