Podcast: STEAM at the Museum of the Riverina

Written by Ben Newsome on March 25th, 2018.      0 comments

Samantha Leah and the FizzicsEd Podcast Episode 46

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.

"What I really want is get as many kids as possible coming into the museum to say; this is a place I belong"
