And Fizzics Education with Ben Newsome


The event was a huge success, thanks to our wonderful hosts, Ben Newsome and the staff at Newcastle Museum. Students and their families joined us for a variety of introduction into STEM activities. The presentations included “Destination Moon” astronomy basics of space, distance and time; “Cyber security” keeping yourself and family safe on digital devices; “Design Thinking” to be solutionaries in your community; and finally “Brush Bots” building small robots learning about teamwork and closed circuits. The training coincided with E4L’s quarterly board meeting, held in Sydney, Australia, hosted by board member, Ben Newsome.
