Students creating museums exhibitions? Love it! In this episode we speak with Sam Leah who is working on "STEAM the Museum", a project where an opportunity class from Sturt Public School are working to create an interpretative robotic display that will tell the story the royal visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Wagga Wagga, NSW. From meshing coding & the arts together to designing interpretative displays, this project is all about students making history come alive.

Hosted by Ben Newsome from Fizzics Education.
