Strengthening national partnerships
As a part of a national commitment to mathematics and natural science, several of TEMI municipalities have been accepted as science municipalities by the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training, and will receive funds in order to increase the local competence in science. The universities and college universities will help these municipalities, in order to provide training and building networks within each municipality. This is a good way to disseminate some of the key ideas of TEMI, and TEMI Norway looks forward to the future collaboration. On April 6 2016, HBV is organizing a conference, with invited TEMI-teachers from all the participating schools, students, colleagues from the science teacher education as well as policy makers. The program of the day will include some of the top speakers in Norway when it comes to dissemination of natural science, and there will be presenters talking about the 5E-method, showmanship and mysteries.
