Event description

Description

James Riggall is a Tasmanian entrepreneur who found his start as a teacher at the Human Interface Technology (HITlab) in Launceston.

He will speak about STEM and STEAM education in Tasmania, including work he has been doing through his tech education company, Bitlink, and a hackerspace he runs in collaboration with the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston, the Battery Shed. James has also recently been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to travel to the United States for eight months, which has come about because of tech education projects that he has been working on with collaborators in Seattle over the past few years (including a few years working at the UTAS HITLab). He will talk about what he will be doing on his Fulbright trip, and how those projects came to be.

If you're interested in STEM and STEAM education, or technology education more generally, you won't want to miss this presentation.
