    "The energy stick is a simple inexpensive piece of kit, which I first came across in an Amgen Teach seminar earlier this year. It grabs people's attention straight away.

    "Teachers need to use innovative strategies to keep them engaged. Even though I am experienced, I like IBSE training because it helps me understand my student' perspectives a little bit more. Every time, I work with a different group of teachers on inquiry-based activities. I am exposed to different aspects and see some my students' reactions in myself! This gives me valuable insights about how to best support and motivate them."
