Two Talks from Perth, July 2015


Two talks were recently given by Dr Michael Fitzgerald that have placed up on the Our Solar Siblings Vimeo site. Both were in Perth in mid-2015. There was a set of three conferences run over two weeks where I gave these two presentations as well as a workshop at CONASTA, the conferene for the Australian Science Teachers Association. The first recorded talk was at the Astronomical Society of Australia (ASA) meeting and involved presenting (quite rapidly!) our research into the types of projects that involve high school students in undertaking authentic scientific research around the world similar to Our Solar Siblings. The second talk was at the Australasian Science Education Research Association (ASERA) meeting which outlined my high school project “Our Solar Siblings”, it’s design, it’s results and it’s future directions. It was a more extended outline of the project from a science education research perspective and goes much deeper into what we are trying to do and where we are at in that endeavour.
