About Creative Lab

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

The 14 & 15 October event featured a keynote presentation by Dr Kim Nicholls, PhD, Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland; workshops led by Dr Paul Muir, Collection Manager / Researcher for corals at Museum of Tropical Queensland; an Indigenous STEM workshop led by Imelda Miller and CSIRO and an Engineering workshop led by Queensland Museum experts partnered with Engineers Without Borders.


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

“… SO good to have world-class presenters and a real-world experience of how we would work with students in a highly productive manner.”

“The presenters were excellent and engaging as were the activities.”

“I now have more ideas about how to start inquiry-based learning in my classroom.”

“…Interaction was also really good in the workshops where we got to participate and see how the different techniques could be applied in the classroom.”

“Creative Lab had very strong and relevant links to the Australian Curriculum.”
