Atlantic Conference 2011

On March 10th 2011, the Irish Midlands will host an international conference exploring a variety of issues surrounding the development and promotion of science, technology, engineering and maths education.

The conference promises to be an informative and enlivening event. A range of key speakers from Ireland, UK and North America will develop a lively and stimulating forum for debate.

The key theme to be addressed is – how can educators inspire students to engage with science, technology, engineering and maths?

Keynote speaker at the event will be Ben Goldacre - a doctor, broadcaster and author of Bad Science.
Michael John Gorman of Dublin's Science Gallery, Sarah Baird from the Arizona Centre for STEM Education and Patrick Cunningham, Chief Scientific Advisor to the Irish Government will also speak.

The event takes place in Tullamore Co. Offaly and further details are avaliable on the website.

The conference is a project of Atlantic Corridor, a Department of Foreign Affairs funded initiative which seeks to develop links for the Irish Midlands for education and business projects with partner regions in Northern Ireland, the USA and Canada.
