Two for one conference aims to enliven science teaching

For the first time, BEANZ and NZIC will run their conferences in tandem.

moleculesThis year’s BEANZ and NZIC conferences are not to be missed. For the very first time, they will be held in tandem, at Victoria University of Wellington, from 5-8 July, 2015.

The BioLive/ChemEd conference 2015 promises a lively programme of speakers, workshops and field trips, including a dinner at Te Papa, a range of joint sessions, and concurrent specialist sessions.

A welcome function will be held on the evening of Sunday 5 July, 2015, and there will be a number of interesting excursions around the Wellington region. More details about these will be confirmed later.

Keynote speakers include bioluminescence expert Dr Siouxsie Wiles from the University of Auckland, Professor Ian Shaw and Associate Professor Anthony Poole from the University of Canterbury.

As well as giving a lecture, Dr Peter Wothers from the University of Cambridge will provide an opening extravaganza, The Chemistry of Light, both in honour of the International Year of Light, and to guarantee an electrifying start to the conference.

The conference theme is Moving Forward: Pathways and partnerships for biology and chemistry learning.

Early bird registration closes on April 24.

BioLive/ChemEd 2015 will be held between 3pm 5 July, and 3.30pm 8 July, 2015 at the Victoria University of Wellington Kelburn campus.
