Australian National Maritime Museum

Julianna works on finding out more about the activity patterns of the Port Jackson shark using bio-loggers like accelerometers that function like Fitbits-but for sharks. 

The Fish Lab also completes studies on individual variation (sharks have personalities!), social networks (sharks have friends!), metabolic rates, spatial navigation and olfaction (navigation and smell), learning, warming ocean climates and laterality (left and right ‘handedness’).

State Library NSW

To celebrate National Science Week 2020, join us for a deep dive into the oceans and ice-scapes of Antarctica. In this interactive online excursion, students will explore the library’s world-famous Antarctica collection to discover what the Antarctic environment is like and how this influences humans’ interaction with it. Students use design thinking to create their own adaptation for survival, examine the real-world solutions of explorers and scientists and determine how sustainability relates to the human impact on Antarctica.
