To help celebrate the upcoming 100th edition of COSMOS Magazine, the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus) is aiming to remind people that STEM brings hope, with a fascinating collaboration with street mural artist Jenny McCracken. You can view Jenny at work on the mural HERE.
In addition we are putting out the call to hear what students are hopeful about as they consider future STEM developments and innovations. Completed student worksheets can be summitted to enter the draw to appear in an upcoming COSMOS Magazine edition.
“What will the next 20 years bring? There are so many reasons to hope”, says Gail MacCallum, COSMOS Magazine editor.
“Science is something to be treasured and celebrated. It’s also what scientists commit to every day – puzzling over problems, collecting information, inventing solutions, and working towards a future for all of us that is healthier, smarter and more sustainable.”
Why not celebrate National Science Week by asking your students to share their reasons to hope?
- download one of the Reason to Hope worksheets below and share with your students
- ask students to write or draw something that they believe will be an exciting STEM development in the next 20 years – something they hope to see
- display student work around your classroom and schools
- To enter the draw to appear in COSMOS Magazine – scan or take a photo of completed entries, and send to [email protected]. Please include teacher contact details and school name and address.
