ITEMS was presented twice at the Association for Science Education (ASE) conference in Nottingham in early January 2010. The ASE conference is one of the largest gatherings of science educators in Europe attracting registrations from many countries. Attendance on the first day was reduced due to snowstorms but recovered subsequently.
There was considerable interest in the ITEMS modules and operation. Partners in other EU projects also presented at the conference.
The S-TEAM project was also presented. This focuses on enabling large numbers of teachers to adopt inquiry-based and other methods for more effective science teaching.
