We continued our partnership with NanoGirl Labs last year to deliver science videos for children learning at home during the Level 4 lockdown.
The video series Breaking it Down, aired on TVNZ during the day, with episodes covering ‘Materials’, ‘Energy and Electricity’ and ‘Mixtures’, including interviews with Co-Directors, Professor Justin Hodgkiss, Associate Professor Nicola Gaston, and Principal Investigator, Professor Jadranka Travas-Sejdic.
Founder & CEO of Nanogirl Labs, Joe Davis, says NanoGirl Labs had a clear vision - to support the nation’s teachers delivering science learning during a profoundly challenging time, and to take that opportunity to shift the conversation. "The MacDiarmid Institute - longtime partners in our STEM outreach mission - were the first to step up and get behind our vision for Breaking it Down, and as a result, hundreds of thousands of Kiwis have been exposed to STEM learning who would not otherwise."
We are, as always, incredibly grateful for the MacDiarmid team’s vision and support.Joe Davis Founder & CEO NanoGirl Labs
