‘CSI’ prize for top teacher of sci­ence

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

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.
