Pawsey After Hours: Making Data Accessible to Students

26 FEB 2020 | 3:30PM - 6:00PM
Kensington, Perth

Teachers are invited to join this event, discussing how to use data for student projects


This event is aimed at all teachers, in particular, Secondary Science teachers.

Feed your creativity (and your stomach!) while exploring ways to engage your students with real-world data.

Join us for an interesting and interactive discussion with Rob Hollow – a leading outreach educator in astronomy – known for his innovative teaching practices (think PULSE@Parkes).

We also invite you to browse the many real-world, data-driven case studies – in astronomy, food supply, life sciences, medicine, and more – showcased at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, one of Australia’s two Tier 1 high-performance computing facilities.


Rob is the Education Officer for CSIRO's Astronomy and Space Science (CASS). He has developed educational programs and materials to support students, teachers and the public in their understanding of astronomy. Part of his role is to write online educational resources in astronomy and in particular the radio astronomy and other work carried out by CASS.

Rob also runs teacher workshops for teachers, give presentations to teacher groups and schools and coordinate a speaker program of CASS researchers for schools and community groups.
