|Dr Ken Silburn|
When our children are young, they thrive for information about themselves and their environment. They quest for information about dinosaurs, space travel and explosions. Well the dinosaurs are all dead, and there is a limit on how explosive you can be in a school environment. But the prospect and excitement of space travel is endless.Ken is an accomplished presenter. Presentations include the prestigious Einstein lectures for the Australian Institute of Physics as part of the Sydney Science Festival, Science Education Conferences as well as Google Summits in Sydney and Canberra. I was the recipient of the 2013 NSW State Award for Innovation in Science Teaching and more recently the 2014 NSW Australian Academy of Physics Award for Community Outreach. I will be extending the time in India to provide science outreach programs and teacher professional development activities to Indian Schools supported by the Australian High Commission in India. I have participated in NASA Spaceward Bound Expeditions to the Mojave, Desert USA, and the Pilbara and Arkaroola expeditions in Australia.
