The Trustees of the Bell Burkhardt Daro Shell Centre Trust are pleased to announce that Pete Wright has been chosen as recipient of the 2024 Bell Burkhardt Daro Shell Centre Award for Aspiring Educational Designers in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics. Pete established the Teaching Maths for Social Justice Network (TMSJN) in 2021 and the Network has since grown to over 200 members. It facilitates sharing practice, resources and support among teachers of mathematics across all school phases.

Pete plans to use the award to support the development of a new, free professional development workshop for teacher educators through designing, trialling and evaluating a series of regional face-to-face events. The workshop will enhance the practice of teachers of mathematics and their engagement with the TMSJN classroom activities.

Congratulations to Pete on his $1000 prize!
