The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are so important and they represent an opportunity for you and your students to make a real impact in your local community and beyond! We chat with Helena Nicholson, a Digital Technology teacher and sustainability leader in South West Western Australia who is doing just that! Hosted by Ben Newsome from Fizzics Education About Helena Nicholson With over 20 years teaching experience, Helena's teaching roles have morphed with the times, as she demonstrates a lifelong love of learning and the ability to be flexible and adaptable, yet purposeful. With a background in Theatre and leading Science teaching and learning and sustainability, she now drives STEM learning, underpinned by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). She teaches K-6 in Digital Technology and guides her staff in STE(A)M integration as they teach a design thinking approach across the school. Her STEM inspiration was kicked off at the STEMX Academy in Canberra in 2017 and on-ground, the deeply embedded school sustainability culture links seamlessly to SDG’s. “Teaching is all about relationships…building strong relationship with students, colleagues, in a professional learning network and the local community is essential.” Helena believes in the power of students to drive their own learning and that learning experiences must have a purpose, a meaningful context and be for an authentic audience. She learns with the students and loves to ignite their curiosity and inspire them.  About the FizzicsEd Podcast With interviews with leading science educators and STEM thought leaders, this science education podcast is about highlighting different ways of teaching kids within and beyond the classroom. It's not just about educational practice & pedagogy, it's about inspiring new ideas & challenging conventions of how students can learn about their world! https://www.fizzicseducation.com.au/ Know an educator who'd love this STEM podcast episode?  Share it!
