A brand new podcast for Kids produced by Sydney Opera House.
Kids are front and centre here. We invite them to talk about a range of topics from The environment, education, creativity, social media and more.
Kids Talk Accessibility
What if you couldn’t participate in the activities you wanted to, just because you couldn’t use the stairs or weren’t able to see what type of money you were holding? In this episode we talk about disability and learn about the importance of accessibility, so all kids can participate in the activities they love. Plus, learn the rules of wheelchair basketball!
Kids Celebrating Diversity
When we think about sport and the workplace- are we treated differently depending on if we are a girl or a boy or what cultural background we are from? In this episode we discuss the importance of gender and cultural diversity. Plus, learn why girls are just as capable as boys!
How do we deal with losing someone we love? In this episode we discuss the importance of reaching out and talking about how we feel when we experience failure, disappointment or the loss of a loved one. We meet Grace, whose father died when she was 10. Grace now makes a web series which celebrates her dad’s life and acts to keep his memory alive. Plus, learn how to make to make a cake for the soul (it’s chocolate flavoured!)
Episode 1 - Science
Come inside the science fair and hear about the projects created by kids who love all things science! Meet Macinley Butson who invented a technology to help women with cancer while she was still in school. Plus, learn how to make slime!
Episode 5 - Social Media
In the final episode of this season, 12 year old Ariel interviews Sydney Opera House Social Media Specialist Claire and we hear from kids helping to build a new App for young people. We all know Social Media takes up a lot of kids time and energy and comes with some inherent dangers. Yet all the kids we spoke to were keenly aware of being safe on the internet and pretty savvy about not relying too heavily on 'likes' to boost their self-esteem.
Episode 4 - Music
Lots of kids take music lessons or learn an instrument at some point in their lives. Some kids practice daily and make music a central focus of life. For almost every kid we spoke to music meant something personal to them. Hear from Sydney Children's choir about why they make music and what it's like to perform on stage of the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.
