In this interview with In Situ Science Matt talks about the importance of connecting with nature in the classroom and how school students have the opportunity to not just learn about science, but be scientists by taking part in real-world science experiments. We chat about the Tiny Gardeners Project, an upcoming citizen science project where school groups across Australia can participate and learn about how ants are Australia’s ‘tiny gardeners’ planting tree seeds across our vast country. Find out more about the Tiny Gardeners Project here, and about the Thalgarrah Environmental Education Centre here.   Find out more at www.insituscience.com Follow us on Twitter @insituscience Follow us on Instagram Like us on Facebook Music: ‘Strange Stuff’ by Sonic Wallpaper - www.sonicwallpaper.bandcamp.com TER #142 - Genetics and Teacher Impact with Callie Little and Sally Larsen - 24 November 2019 https://soundcloud.com/ter-podcast/ter-142-genetics-and-teacher Teachers Education Review urn:uuid:59d76153-ab76-c321-6981-1ef01f2e46b0 Sun, 24 Nov 2019 19:28:32 +1100 TER #142 - Genetics and Teacher Impact with Callie Little and Sally Larsen - 24 November 2019 by Teachers' Education Review Teachers' Education Review 00:40:24 no TER #142 - Genetics and Teacher Impact with Calli… TER #142 - Genetics and Teacher Impact with Callie Little and Sally Larsen - 24 November 2019 by Teachers' Education Review Early Learning STEM Australia https://omny.fm/shows/the-fizzicsed-podcast/ep-87-early-learning-stem-australia The FizzicsEd Podcast urn:uuid:19db645a-9db7-7a5a-526e-634e1b6198db Mon, 11 Nov 2019 14:33:16 +1100 <p>Bringing STEM into the early childhood setting is so important for kid's development!

Benji is currently visiting Australia from the USA where he is doing his PhD at the University of California. He was nice enough to sit down for a chat to talk about how a severe arachnophobe managed to forge a career in science studying the visual and vibratory signalling behaviours of spiders.</p> <p>In this interview we talk about how a life spent doing both science and comedy can interact and how sometimes you’re not sure which one you are doing. We discuss whether you can be a stupid scientist, whether you HAVE to be stupid to be a scientist, and how far can you push the limits with putting puns in your research paper titles. At In Situ Science we strongly believe that great discoveries come from the amazing and unique individuals that do research, and Benji Kessler is the perfect example.

Live from the Django Bar          Support In Situ Science on Patreon In Situ Science returned to the Django Bar to celebrate National Science Week and the Sydney Science Festival. This year we we’re joined by Cameron Webb (USyd and NSW Health), Katherina Petrou (UTS), Fonti Kar (UNSW) and Samuel Bannister (USyd) who shared stories about everything from studying marine algae in Antarctic sea ice, to fishing for komodo dragons with giant genetically engineered mosquitos. We asked our panel important questions about careers in science such as ‘do you have a plan B’ and ‘whats the weirdest thing you have been bitten by?’ We discovered a range of new scientific terms including ‘bum snorkels’ and ‘Devil’s lettuce’ and once again we tested the wits and wisdom of our panel with a ‘guess that ology’ quiz. Katherina Petrou was named smartest scientist of the night and took home one of our much sought after In Situ Science trophies. Thanks to the Django Bar for having us back once again and to our amazing Sydney Science Festival Volunteers.

She has supported student learning from Prep to Year 9 and has taught on class from Year 2 to 7. From 2009 until the present, Libby has taught between Northern Peninsula Area State College (Bamaga and Injinoo Campuses) at the tip of Cape York, and Chevallum State School, on the Sunshine Coast. Libby has always had a keen interest in the learning experiences and outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. This was one of the key motivations for Libby in becoming a teacher.</p> <p>In her teaching, Libby is passionate about Mathematics and Science education. She is one of the reSolve Maths by inquiry champions and was the teacher keynote speaker at the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers Biennial Conference in July 2019. She has shared teaching ideas through workshops at the Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers&rsquo; Early Years Conference, and at the AAMT Biennial Conference. In 2018 Libby was a successful recipient of an Advance Queensland Engaging Science grant and organised STEM-related learning experiences for students at Injinoo Junior Campus in far north Queensland. The main aim of the initiative was to raise the profile of Science and the other interrelated disciplines in the remote context and create a community of learning. Virtual incursions and a teacher PD workshop from Ben Newsome of Fizzics Education inspired and excited teachers and students. The College had visits from A/Prof Hilary Whitehouse and Dr Cliff Jackson from JCU Cairns, who shared their love of science education through hands-on investigations. A mixed kit of digital technologies resources from the CSER Lending Library also enhanced STEM learning.</p> <p>Libby believes it is vital, that as teachers of tomorrow&rsquo;s leaders, we encourage students to notice, question, analyse, evaluate, and become fascinated by the world around us. She hopes that, with a solid foundation on mathematical understanding and skills and a keen aptitude for scientific inquiry, an initial spark of curiosity in students will grow into questioning, exploration and then discovery of a love of STEM learning.</p> <p><strong>About the FizzicsEd Podcast</strong></p> <p>With interviews with leading science educators and STEM thought leaders, this science education podcast is about highlighting different ways of teaching kids within and beyond the classroom.

In this interview we talk about the importance of fundamental biological research for enhancing applied agricultural research. We also chat about the strange beast that is the academic publishing system and how it needs to be improved into the future. Follow Tom on Twitter @TomSaundersNZ and visit his research website here.
