Let’s keep in touch!

Dear TEMI friends, unfortunately as all good things, also TEMI came to an end last July after 3 exciting years. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you alone in the search for innovative methodologies and resources to teach science.  Here a list of ways to stay in contact with us:

1. Keep following us on Twitter @teachmysteries;

2. Download our toolkit Teaching the TEMI way and over 30 lesson plans  collected in the Book of Science  Mysteries and soon on Scientix;

3.Download the booklet “Light Mystery - A script with added comments” to implement TEMI activities in the classroom and improve your showmanship skills. For more information, contact us: spettacolo@fisica.unimi.it;

4. Participate to a competition to win one of the six physics experimental kits developed by the University of Milano – Italy. The rules for participating to the competition will be soon available on the University website;

5. Download the TEMI App to be used together with the educational resources on the App Store and on Google Play;

6. In the TEMI countries (read more):

Austria – Join the ‘Mysteries in Practice’ (MiP), a continuing professional development course and aims to establish a Community of Practice regarding inquiry-based learning in chemistry education. Refresh your TEMI training with 1 day workshop starting from 2017. For more information: e.hofer@univie.ac.at

Czech Republic -Don’t miss the Czech version of the Book of Science Mysteries hana.ctrnactova@natur.cuni.cz

France – Come to Paris to see how TEMI influenced and left deep traces  in the informal learning community: check out the experimentally mysterious activities of Les Atomes Crochus, the showmanship in our new theatre play “Pas Science, tout de même “ co-produced with high school students, and the open-ended misterious experiments at Espace des Sciences Pierre-Gilles de Gennes.

Germany – If you missed the last TEMI cohort in Bremen, no panic! The University of Bremen is collaborating with the Chemielehrerfortbildungzentrum Bremen-Oldenburgto organise TEMI half- and full-day events on a regular basis to introduce the methodology based on the developed resources . See www.lfz.uni-bremen.de.

Ireland – No matter where you are based in Ireland, you will have the opportunity to taste TEMI: the University of Limerick is running workshops this school year in Irish Science teachers Association (ISTA) branches around the country.  You can also find TEMI ideas in the next issues of Chemistry in Action! starting with the next issue (#108). For more information about the workshops Peter.Childs@ul.ie

Israel – Register to the “The Chemistry Laboratory in High School” yearlong programme to find ideas to temify your lessons. And if you are into informal education, keep an eye on the Carasso Science Park in Be’er Sheva which is working on  chemistry exhibits inspired by TEMI activities. For information: rachel.mamlok@weizmann.ac.il

Italy – Be quick to enroll in the Scientific Degree Plan (PLS): teachers will have the opportunity to use the 6 experimental kits to implement TEMI mysteries in their classes. Theatrical activities will so continue with theatre shows and theatrical labs for students and /or teachers. Check spettacolo.fisica.unimi.it or contact spettacolo@fisica.unimi.it

Netherlands – If you are looking for new ideas to teach astronomy, try it the TEMI way! The University of Leiden team incorporated the four TEMI innovations in 4 successful teachers’ programmes about astronomy: Universe Awereness, Space Awereness, Europlanet and AstroEDU. For the Universe Awereness training courses  and the Dutch version of the Book of Mysteries: schrier@strw.leidenuniv.nl

Norway – If you are interested in further resources in science education, the Norwegian Centre for Science Education has a website full of ideas, activities and more: http://www.naturfag.no/

UK – Keep in touch with TEMI and many of our other enquiry based learning projects through our website. Here you will find out about the many ways that we work with the STEM education community including teachers, pupils, science centres, museums and informal learning settings. At the heart of our work with educators is innovation and impact. We produce resources, approaches, strategies and support for all people working in the field of STEM education.
