Over 200 parents, students, teachers and interested individuals attended virtual lectures on Storytelling in Science Education and the History and Philosophy of Science which were delivered as part of the Science Extension course. Barker is pleased to open its classroom and all were welcome to join in this unique experience. Attendees came from across the state including regional areas such as Albury, Orange, Tamworth and Armidale.
The Barker institute would like to thank Dr Alison Gates for her generous contribution to an appreciative audience from Barker and beyond.
