    Join ExoLab - An ISS Project for Schools with Magnitude

    Discover how your school can replicate an experiment on the International Space Station with ExoLab in your school as we chat with Ted Tagami, User Advisory Committee - Education Chair at ISS US National Laboratory & co-founder of Magnitude!

    Hosted by Ben Newsome from Fizzics Education

    About ExoLab

    ExoLab is a science experiment where students from across the world compare their results with an identical growth chamber on the International Space Station. Schools have the opportunity to use the same equipment used on the ISS to give students an opportunity to participate in real-time research in a connected global school community.
    Students collect and analyze data to identify the optimal combination of legume, bacteria, and soil to produce nodulation in the harsh environment of the space.
    They engage in experimental design, data collection and analysis, writing and revising hypotheses, and communicating about what they’ve learned using evidence from their experiments.
    Direct curriculum outcomes for high school
    Guided by experienced educators from Fizzics Education & Magnitude.
    Available globally for schools

    The experiments are initiated on the ISS in accordance with resupply missions. This allows for multiple experiments per year, giving options on when to align the classroom experiment with the ISS experiment. Students look for relationships between the environmental conditions, including the effect of microgravity on the growth of living things in general.

    Maree Timms & DTAC Wangaratta

    Be inspired as we chat with Maree Timms, founder of Digital Technologies Advisory Committee Wangaratta. DTAC Wangaratta helps students across the region & beyond connect with STEM in a variety of ways!

    Hosted by Ben Newsome from Fizzics Education

    About DTAC Wangaratta

    The Digital Technologies Advisory Committee is a collection of organisations and individuals who are working hard to fix the problem our region is facing with Digital Inclusion. it started as a collaboration between the NE Tracks LLEN ( Local Learning and Employment Network), Local GOTAFE & Charles Sturt University.

    When DTAC commence in 2016, the local Digital Inclusion score was 43.8. In the most recent report they've shot past the 50% mark with a new scoring of 50.8 - an increase of 7%! (By comparison Melbourne moved from 62.5% to 63.6% in the same period).

    In Maree's words:
    We do our own teacher workshops, and now collaborations for regional workshops with DLTV ( Digital Learning & Teaching Victoria, STAV Science teachers association, MAV maths teachers association & OZgrav at Swinburne)
    Also a big focus is “girls in STEM” – we have had a number of these workshops including one of the coolest, where we have had FORD engineers travel to Wangaratta to work with our local girls.
    Last year with COVID put a bit of a halt on things, but we have created another partnership with One Giant Leap Australia Foundation, who have many cool space projects. The Kibo Challenge, seeds in space program – check out their website for more info.

    "The formation of DTAC has to sit high up there with creating change and innovation in our community. We would never had thought we would have achieved all this.  There has been so many wonderful outcomes."

    About Maree Timms

    Maree grew up in Wangaratta and attended Monash University, becoming a science teacher & started teaching in 1986 in a very multicultural school. At 25 years old she taught in Turkey for 10 months and then backpacked across a variety of countries during a 2.5 year period. She moved to the Northern Territory to teach at Taminmin College for 4 years followed by Gunbalanya Community School for 10 years in Arnhemland where she "learnt more than I ever taught!!". She returned to Wangaratta following this and has now been teaching at Galen Catholic College for past 14 years.

    In her words...

    I’ve had way too many cool things happen in my teaching career.
    Taking a group of students from Humpty Doo ( Taminmin College) to Open the National Science week way back in 1994’s at Parliament house. Infront of Dr Karl Kruszelnickii!!  We created the Taminmin Magic Science Show!
    Taking a group of Indigenous kids ( Gunbalanya) to the Paralympic Games for the whole two weeks
    Taking a group of Indigenous Kids/parents and Elders ( Gunbalanya) to accept an award for a Claymation we created to Melbourne. ( It won NT film of the year!!)  https://vimeo.com/139298727
    Winning the right to represent Australia at the VEX Worlds Robotics Championships, in 2018, 2019 and 2020 ( we couldn’t go in 2020)
    Being invited to have lunch with the Lead Scientist of Victoria in her office – with our robotics team
    Winning the Right to represent Australia in the 1st Kibo Challenge 2020 and see our student's code control NASA’s Astrobee robot on the ISS.
    ** I still don’t know how to code…or build robots – but have taken teams to the highest level – I gather good allies/colleagues that have the skills I don’t have and compliment mine. And kids who are willing to learn and have a go and teach themselves!!  They are the YouTube and online forum generation!! I coordinate, facilitate, and “hammer’ them on the communication, teamwork, organisation skills that helps to lead them to success
