Only open to DATTA Vic members

    The latest online teach meet from DATTA Vic features three amazing presenters from the world of STEM and sustainability education. You’ll discover a wide range of programs running throughout Victoria that can benefit your students, and be inspired to address the key concepts of preferred futures, First Nations knowledge and global sustainability in your D&T classes.

    This session features:

    Jonathan Shearer, General Manager of Scienceworks

    Jonathan will take us on a virtual journey through Think Ahead, an exhibition at Scienceworks which imagines how advances in science and technology will change the way we live in the future. How will our cities look? How will new materials change our houses, cities and clothes? What will we eat? How will we use the space around Earth? This is a great source of inspiration for classroom programs on speculative design and preferred futures.

    Alex Lewis, Academic Coordinator, Young Indigenous Women’s STEM Academy

    CSIRO’s Alex Lewis will share the work of the Young Indigenous Women's STEM Academy, which gives participants the tools and support they need to succeed in future STEM careers. The Academy's programs celebrate the ongoing relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have with science and engineering that dates back thousands of years, and co-design their programs closely with these communities to ensure that their knowledge, technologies and processes are an integral part of the learning.

    Leanne Caira, Project Lead, Knox Innovation Opportunity and Sustainability Centre

    Leanne will introduce us to the work of The Knox Innovation Opportunity and Sustainability Centre (KIOSC), an innovative, shared learning environment which inspires students to prepare for the careers of the future. Many of their school workshops support Design & Technologies education, including programs on advanced manufacturing, environmental management, sports technology, engineering and sustainability.

    Thanks to the Department of Education & Training for their support for this event through their Strategic Partnership Program
