In order to give due recognition to the exceptional work developed by Maltese Science teachers and to encourage and promote local good practice in the field of Science education, the committee of the Maltese Association of Science Educators has established the ‘MASE Distinguished Science Teaching Award’. This award, which will be assigned on an annual basis, gives credit to those teachers who have distinguished themselves through their particular contribution in Science education.


In this first edition of the award, an independent panel of judges has reviewed all the documentation presented and using a specific set of judging criteria decided that this year the award will be handed over to a team of eleven Physics teachers and two laboratory technicians from St. Ignatius College B.S.S. Tal-Handaq. This team was given this award in view of the exemplary work they managed to achieve over the last nine years through the project ‘Going Renewable’. This project was mainly intended to convey the message that we can all contribute to our Sustainable development and the students, in particular, have to be active agents by adopting a lifestyle that is sensible to sustainability issues. Apart from that, the project also encouraged students to develop their knowledge through inquiry-based learning and helped the students to enhance higher order skills that are fundamental for the development of effective lifelong learning individuals.  More information about this school initiative can be found on the dedicated website


The award ceremony was held in collaboration with the Malta Council for Science and Technology and was held at Villa Bighi, Kalkara on Wednesday the 25th May. A return flight to attend the conference ‘3rd Paris International Conference on Education, Economy and Society’ to be held at the Hotel Concorde La Fayette, Paris, France in July was presented by Mr. Sylvain Heydlauf, the Lufthansa CEO to Ms. Loredana Maggi representing the Physics team at St Ignatius College, Handaq. A voucher for school lab equipment was presented to the school by Mr. Marc Vella for LEVO Lab supplies. The registration fee for the conference in Paris and a trophy to commemorate the event were presented by Mr. Elton Micallef, the MASE president.
