CSIRO is offering the opportunity for two Australian science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) primary and secondary teachers to sail on board RV Investigator as part of a 14 day transit voyage from Sydney to Broome.

There are two main research projects happening on this voyage:

RV Investigator is our state-of-the-art marine research vessel.

  • Natural iron fertilization of the oceans around Australia from terrestrial dust, bushfire smoke and anthropogenic emissions
  • Spatial and temporal variability in the distribution and abundance of seabirds

Participating teachers will work with researchers on board and develop curriculum-linked classroom resources that can be trialed in their classroom/school and eventually shared with other teachers.

Read more about the experience from Stuart, the first educator on board the RV Investigator.

To Apply

Provide a copy of your CV and a short letter outlining your vision for this program, your experience developing curriculum linked classroom activities based on scientific research, any experience working at sea, with small groups of people or working in isolated situations.  You will also need to provide a letter of support from your principal.

Applications close by 5pm on Wednesday 26th July 2017.
