    In this recorded professional learning session, Greta Dromgool will build your knowledge and confidence to teach the particle nature of matter – a key concept in the New Zealand science curriculum. Greta will break down the science, giving you useful hands-on strategies for grappling with this notoriously tricky concept.

    Thank you, I’m a beginner so this has been enlightening and motivating!
