“I’ve been going to the conference every year since I became a science technician. I never fail to learn something new and I always enjoy meeting other like minded technicians. Last year I was invited to present a session which was great fun passing on ideas and resources to my fellow techs and I hope everyone went home with something new to show their department. The technician conference is the highlight of the summer term!” – Sarah James, Senior Technician at Hodge Hill College
