NSW geography teachers conference

Peter Hazell and Luke Peel attended the Geography Teachers Association of NSW & ACT conference in early April, presenting content for the Sustainable Biomes curricula followed by a hands-on workshop. 

Luke's presentation covered landscape processes and management of past (Gondwanaland to Aboriginal settlement), since European settlement and what future practices need to aim to achieve and how. 

Peter's workshop involved theory along with practical experiments showing how sun, gravity, water, temperature, and humidity interact with the landscape and biological processes to manage Earth's climate. Both sessions were fully booked with 30 teachers who were impressed and eager to take the practical demonstrations back to their students.
