The Science Museum, the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA), through the Strategic Commissioning programme are running free Talk Science days for trainee teachers and museum and archive staff. £20 travel bursaries are available to help with travel costs.

Talk Science: Effective Discussions in How Science Works, is on January 17, 2011 at Braintree Museum, Essex.

This one day training course, run by the Science Museum training team will give participants the chance to investigate practical ways of discussing contemporary science, and consider the role of museums in providing quality Learning Outside the Classroom opportunities.
