Workshop: Dark Sky

Workshop Video Link

Video Synopsis:

The Dark Sky education units are fully resourced and mapped to the NSW curriculum. With a STEM focus, students will develop solutions that protect the night sky. 

This workshop provides an overview of the units and how to access the free programs, resources and global industry experts as mentors. 

In collaboration with STEM Punks, we offer a program that compliments the Stage 3 unit that sees learners work through the design thinking process to produce a light sensor and a 3D data map.

The stage 4 unit is a cross curricular program that incorporates Science, HSIE, English and Visual Arts to produce a Community Action Initiative hosted on a website. 

This is a fantastic opportunity that is free to all educators globally!
