The Science of the Black Box

  • -

The Science of the Black Box is a dynamic online learning program inviting young people to explore traditional Tasmanian Aboriginal artifacts and the modern science behind their remarkable qualities: from the medicinal properties of bull kelp to the chemistry of resins and the secrets of bush-foods.

Delivered by TMAG Aboriginal Learning Facilitator, Teangi Brown in association with science educators at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, this online forum will provide an opportunity for students (Years 5 to 10) and the general public to immerse themselves in the science that sits alongside many traditional First Nation's practices in lutruwita / Tasmania.

Using green screen technology students and the general public will be able to get up close to the materials as well as make virtual visit to milaythina / on Country. Students and the general public will also be able to ask questions of our presenter with follow up after the presentation.

A recording will be available after the event. Join the event live via TMAG's youtube channel.   No bookings required.
