Algae videoconferencing series

Discover how algae can be harnessed to create sustainable products and processes for a more sustainable future at one of a series video conferencing workshops for schools at which students get to drive a robot. This unique videoconferencing schools program presents an opportunity for students to virtually enter a real lab and discover the research and innovation happening at the University of Technology Sydney.

Presented by the UTS Deep Green Biotech Hub, and produced in collaboration with UTS ART and the Department of Education and Training, the workshop series will touch on aspects of algae biology.

Students will be taken on a tour of the algae facilities to see research at work. By remotely controlling the movements of the robot, students have the chance to experience moving through the halls and lab spaces at the University while not having to leave the school grounds.

To delve deeper, students can then complete activities which explore the intersection between Art, Science, Mathematics and Engineering and discover how collaboration across diverse disciplines creates fresh, innovative ways to perceive and solve complex problems.
