Primary Science Education Conference (PSEC) | Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) | Thursday, 06. June 2019

6th-8th June 2019
The international Primary Science Education Conference (PSEC) will unite primary educators from across the UK and internationally to share best practice in primary science and to develop and strengthen networks. The conference is hosted by the Primary Science Teaching Trust, whose vision is to see excellent teaching of science, in every primary classroom in the UK.
Please see our website for further information about the conference: www.primaryscienceconference.org

PSEC will offer outstanding professional development to all delegates who will be able to select sessions that match their particular interests and needs. Over three days, the varied programme will offer keynote talks, reflective seminars, interactive talks, practical workshops and breakout sessions. Please see our Highlights Brochure, for a draft conference timetable and more.
Ticket pricing has been responsive to the tight budgets faced by many schools. In order for us to extend our support to teachers after the conference, each teacher delegate ticket includes access to a further one-day CPD event run by the Primary Science Teaching Trust for which there will be no charge. These follow-up events will be delivered by members of our Primary Science Teacher College at different locations around the UK. During PSEC you will be able to register your interest and we will communicate CPD options to you post the conference. The Primary Science Teaching Trust exists to support primary teachers in the delivery of science education, and to champion best practice. We have been achieving this aim for over 20 years, and we wish to continue our journey with you, after PSEC 2019
