On Friday 19th August our Associate Professor of Interactive Media and Design, Dr James Birt, hosted the 'Weaving Technology into the Fabric of the Classroom' professional development workshop as part of the 2018 National Science Week. The event saw 29 teachers from Queensland come together to listen to keynote speakers and participate in hands-on sessions revolving around the innovative use of technology in the classroom. Such practical sessions included augmented reality, virtual reality and mobile Internet of Things (IoT).

Established in 1997, National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. The event features more than 1000 events around Australia, including those delivered by universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres. National Science Week is proudly supported by the Australian Government as an Australian Government Initiative for boosting innovation and science.
