Episode 46 of the FizzicsEd podcast

Students creating museums exhibitions? Love it! In this episode we speak with Sam Leah who is working on "STEAM the Museum", a project where an opportunity class from Sturt Public School are working to create an interpretative robotic display that will tell the story the royal visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Wagga Wagga, NSW. From meshing coding & the arts together to designing interpretative displays, this project is all about students making history come alive.

Episode 10 of the FizzicsEd podcast

When it comes to design thinking, having students create 3D objects that solve a real-world problem is pretty close to a perfect lesson. In this talk with Mandi Dimitriadis from Makers Empire we discover just how far 3D printing has come (you can even print in chocolate!) plus the critical importance of project-based learning in allowing students to explore their own creativity.

Lego robotics captures kids attention like nothing else!

We love Lego Robotics! Also known as Lego Mindstorms, we've been using these robots for years to teach kids coding and logical reasoning in schools for years. Students intuitively understand it and can very quickly have their robot moving and sensing it's environment without the need to learn the back end code that powers it.
