Podcast: Australian F1 Grand Prix & STEM

Written by Ben Newsome on March 17th, 2018.      0 comments

Australian F1 Grand Prix and the FizzicsEd Podcast Episode 45

With the goal of inspiring the next generation, the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix has developed the Industry & Innovation Precinct as the destination for students taking part in the Driving Learning education program. Today we chat with Elyse Dawson, the Manager for Industry Integration at the precinct, where we find out how the hands-on learning opportunities and STEM challenges are designed to help students see endless opportunities.

"We're always getting bigger & bigger and this year it's exciting to have the STEM challenges and get the kids thinking about this before the event. It's not just an excursion to come and see cars at the event, it's really a day of learning that also can be incorporated into the classroom".
