‘CSI’ prize for top teacher of science
Educators inspiring the next generation of science and technology boffins will be rewarded at the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards.
Key partners of the annual event, including senior figures at the University of Kent, Kreston Reeves and Loop CR, are calling for nominations for the district’s top science, maths and IT teachers.
Bob Green, senior lecturer of the university’s School of Physical Sciences, is championing the physics, chemistry and forensic science categories.
“It’s important to promote forensic science because it can catalyse pupils’ interest in science,” he said.
The school is once again offering an action packed ‘CSI day’ for the winning physical sciences teacher and his or her class.
Richard Langshaw, of Loop CR, backing the IT category, said: “We like to support this because of the good work teachers and support staff are doing and the help they’ve given us over the years.
“This is our way of giving something back so they can continue to develop IT within the schools.”
Members of the public can submit as many nominations as they like at www.kentteacherofthe year.co.uk before March 1.
