A podcast with Brett McKay from Kirrawee High and myself covering contemporary science K-12.


Primary Science Matters – Podcast with Fizzics Education.

I recently had the opportunity to record a podcast with Ben Newsome of Fizzics Education. Having an extended time to discuss all things science and teaching was refreshing!


Top 4 learnings from this episode

1. Whilst conducting your science lesson, have in mind a kitchen scale… is your lesson well balanced between having fun and delivering deeper meaning?

2. Use the outdoors. This can be a fantastic circuit breaker for students plus the environment around you can provide a rich source of learning opportunities.

3. Restricting the number of desks in the classroom forces you to creatively think of different methods of delivering a lesson.

4. Invest in your colleagues. Provide as many opportunities as possible for professional development and the investment will pay itself back ten-fold.
