Day 6 Goodbye Olkola

Yah….today I was able to teach my Year 7 Science Extension students at Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School live through the medium of Skype. I have to thank my wonderful relief teacher, Jackie Drake, as she kindly offered to coordinate my students and lessons for me so that today’s Teachlive session could happen.

Day 5: The Fisheries People

My day started off being airlifted by chopper to do fish sampling in mostly dry creek beds with the fish team.  Geoff, from the Queensland Museum and Michael, from the Darwin Museum introduced me to electrofishing - in other words catching fish using 770 volts!
