The 2010 national conference for the Australian Science Teachers Association held its welcome function at the Australian Museum.
CONASTA is the annual Conference of the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA). In 2010, the welcome function for CONASTA 59 was hosted by and held at the Australian Museum on Sunday evening, 4th July.
There were many good reviews of the welcome function as people soaked in the architecture and ambience that only the Museum can provide. Teachers from all over Australia were able to engage with the new exhibitions and activities that the revitalised Museum now offers.
At this year' conference science teachers were to be given the opportunity to discuss and share information about new technologies and talk about the new Australian Curriculum. The conference covered three days, each day packed full of workshops and excursions.
