Building on the Digital Technology curriculum
Have you been watching on Channel 9 or catching up on 9NOW? Our resident LEGO Master (me!) was back on screens for the ultimate series – Grand Masters! Spoiler alert: Gabby and I made it ALL the way to finals week and were but a sniff away from yet another finale build! Children all over Australia have been super inspired by the series and I’m thoroughly enjoying connecting with them all with every school visit!

For years I’ve been working on building a solid Digital Technology and STEM/STEAM program. I’ve looked for ways to not only achieve curriculum objectives, but for exciting ways to get students – and teachers – engaged in the activities to ensure the learning continues beyond the classroom. I’ve worked with many different systems and have found that the one product that can deliver on all fronts is LEGO®. From exploring the principles of motion to engineering structures right through to building and coding complex robots, LEGO® has a solution for it all. But it’s not enough to just have the products – it’s how you use them in the classroom that can really make the difference.
It's not all about LEGO® - I also offer a range of services in Digital Technology, Design and STEM. I'm also passionate about supporting and upskilling your existing staff to confidently run great programs.

The Brickulum will inspire your students
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some amazing people, attend some fantastic professional development and read some impressive material over my time as a Digital Technologies and classroom teacher, and I’ve been able to pick through and find the best bits and develop many of my own activities to create the Brickulum – an engaging series of lessons that will engage students of any age in hands-on, exciting activities where deep learning is embedded within the task. Your students will be so deeply involved in the activities, they won’t even notice they’re learning!
GRAND MASTERS SEMI-FINALIST!
What an outstanding experience to not only get to be on LEGO Masters in 2021, but to get a second chance to come back and have a go at competing against some of the best builders across all 4 seasons in Grand Masters! Arguably, we weren’t one of the highest rated teams, having come third, but with our good planning and exceptional execution, Gabby and I managed to almost make it to the finale for a second time!
I’d love to share some of our journey with your students and inspire them to make the most of every opportunity and follow their dreams!
