About Creative Lab

Teachers from across Queensland were treated to a full day of workshops led by some of Australia’s most innovative and creative leaders in STEM fields.

The 12 May event featured a keynote presentation by Alexander Hayward, Deputy CEO & Director, Collections, Research and Lifelong Learning, Queensland Museum; workshops led by Dr Paul Muir, Collection Manager / Researcher for corals at Museum of Tropical Queensland; Understanding biology and its connection with technology with our partner State Library of Queensland; and an Engineering workshop led by Queensland Museum experts partnered with Power of Engineering.


 Here’s what some of our teachers said about Creative Lab

Particularly helpful with how to teach problem solving. I found the bird wing activity relevant for year 7,8,9 and 10 science curriculum, as well as giving me ideas for ratios in year 9 maths.”

“This is the first museum PD event I have attended and I loved all aspects of the day.”

“Activities in the engineering and flight club are both very interchangeable with other concepts and subjects and allows for different teaching pedagogy.”

“Lots of good ideas on presenting and exploring content which can be extrapolated to lots of topics.”

“Useful resources with creative and practical ways to implement.”
