We were thrilled to have the Honourable Minister for Education, Grace Grace; Director-General Tony Cook; Member for Redlands, Kim Richards; and Ministerial Advisor Gary Austen spend time with us. It was a privilege to showcase our land-based centre, pedagogy and student learning opportunities that occur every day out on Moreton Bay or on one of our ten natural, historical or cultural learning sites.

We had the opportunity to highlight our pedagogical practices of exploration, connection to place, and hands-on learning as year 1 students from Wynnum State School become entomologists engaged in insect collection, observation and identification. Additionally we were able highlight the six star environmental design of the centre that ensures minimal power consumption, optimal light, consistent temperature control and use of sustainable and re-cycled resources in the construction.

Once out on Moreton Bay (Quandamooka), we shared connections between our STEM/STEAM offerings and Citizen Science and were able to highlight work from our diverse partners that add authenticity and richness to our programs. The day did not disappoint with abundant plankton and seagrass; as well as marine life popping up around this incredible RAMSAR listed site of international significance.
