Digital Schools Talk with Steve Mushin (Available on Demand from 12th August until 23rd August) (Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5)
Celebrate Science Week a wild chat with Steve Mushin, author of UltraWild, a groundbreaking graphic novel that unveils scientifically plausible ways to heal our planet and fight climate change.
Steve Mushin is an industrial designer, artist and inventor who collaborates with scientists and engineers to solve perplexing problems that no one else seems to know what to do about – like what can be done with explosive cow gas or how to make bikes fly or cities transform into jungles as fast as possible. Steve has exhibited large-scale design drawings and models around Australia and in Japan. He works between Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, and in 2015 received an Australian Design Honours award for his work in sustainable futures thinking. Ultrawild is Steve’s first book.
Developed over seven years, Ultrawild is an optimistic book about creative thinking, science, technology, engineering and maths and the potential for massive change. Filled with laugh-out-loud design-ridiculousness, it aims to empower and excite a new generation of designers, scientists, engineers and ultra-wild creative thinkers.
Steve Mushin’s blend of serious science and joyful playfulness is bound to ignite your students’ imaginations and empower them to be a part of Earth’s ultimate comeback story!
If your students have a question they would like to ask, you will have the opportunity to record it and send it in for Steve to answer on the day. Questions must be sent no later than 25 April 2024. Further instructions on how to do this will be sent to you upon booking.
