The conference will focus on:

  • Updating your own experience in implementing the activities and tasks
  • Sharing a range of activities which will give children access across APP AFs
  • Introducing a range of scientists and related activities
  • Identifying levels and evidence in activities
  • Identifying real life applications of science
