Earth Ed - Inspiring passion and excellence in science education

Earth Ed is an engaging specialist science and mathematics facility providing real world Earth Science educational experiences for Victorian students.

Focusing on Renewable Energy, Climate Science, Sustainability and Geology, our programs provide access to specialist scientific equipment, innovative digital resources, and promote a scientific inquiry approach to learning.

climate-change-ahead Earth EdPlanning for our Climate Classroom Conference on December 5th is in full swing are we are delighted to have confirmed The Climate Council's Tim Flannery as our keynote speaker.  Registration for our conference is already open and can be completed online here.

We are putting out a call for anyone who is interested in running a workshop on the day.  We are running two separate streams this year; our Climate Knowledge Stream will focus on delivering the latest information on climate science, mitigation and adaptation, while our Climate Resources Stream aims to equip teachers from all year levels with the resources and activities to effectively teach and address climate change from within your classroom.

robocup logoStudents from around Victoria came together at Earth Ed for the RoboCup Junior Ballarat Regional on Friday the 21st of June.  With competitions in Dance and Soccer, plus a special demonstration of RoboCup Rescue by Bacchus Marsh College, there was non-stop excitement for all involved.

Check out the video on our YouTube channel for highlights of the day.

Earth Ed offer workshops for schools who are keen to introduce the world of robotics to their students.

Al-Gore-Earth-EdLate last term, Colleen was lucky enough to be accepted to join Al Gore and his Climate Reality Team (in partnership with The Australian conservation Foundation) for a 3 day conference around Climate Change.

Here is her account of her experience:

On Day 1 of the 3 day conference, we heard from a variety of people who are already living with the consequences of climate change. Health professionals and emergency service personal spoke of very personal experiences working with the community in respect to intensive heat waves, bush fires and floods. Speakers from our neighbouring islands spoke to us about the real threat of rising waters and what that meant to their communities. It was interesting to hear that there is no climate debate within these communities. The science is fully accepted and the discussions are now about finding solutions.
