IOM3 Schools Affiliate Scheme
The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining is celebrating ten years of support for schools through the Schools Affiliate Scheme. The Scheme aims to assist the teaching of the materials, minerals and mining related topics in the 11 to 19 curriculum and raise awareness of careers in these fields. These aims are achieved through the provisions of support materials, journals newsletters, conferences and visits to member schools to deliver curriculum content in a lively and interactive way.
Schools joining or renewing their membership during the 2009-2010 academic year will receive a resource on bridges containing detailed information about the designs and materials used in bridge construction and case studies of particular examples.
Member schools are entitled to a visit as part of their membership package. We are able to offer a range of sessions to suit all age groups and subjects and can deliver more than one session during the day. This visit is at NO EXTRA CHARGE.
Members also receive first notice of our conferences for teachers and are able to attend for free.
Membership of the Scheme costs £30 for 12 months (£20 for student teachers) and more information can be found at www.iom3.org/content/schools-affiliate-scheme. Alternatively contact Dr Diane Aston by emailing diane.aston@iom3.
