CONASTA 66 Conference is a run by the Australian Science Teachers Association for School Science Teachers and Laboratory Technician /Managers. Miriam Mcfarlane TALM’s representative to assist the CONASTA organising committee explains below.
Workshop and seminar topics suitable for Laboratory Technicians are listed in the attached flyer and there are other presentations that you will find interesting, I am sure. I highly recommend CONASTA for the atmosphere, networking, workshops/seminars and food !
To register, go to CONASTA.edu.au and click on the left hand side on the overview of the program or the (= detailed) program to see what interests you before going into the registration process, which can take you some time (approx 30 minutes).
If you have any problems with registration, you can contact Louise Monge on communications(is a dancing llama)asta.edu.au or I may be able to help you, as the registration process requires a bit of patience, but CONASTA is really worth making that extra bit of effort for – you come away with a lot and get to hear some world-class speakers in the keynote presentations.
Early Bird discounts finish on 31st May. Additional discounts also apply to members of TALM* and schools with lab technician and teacher membership of STAT**, however this is a big conference, packed with options to choose from, so the price is about double the cost of TALM’s much smaller annual events. We are expecting about 500 delegates or more and I look forward to seeing some of you there.
