A message from the AGC President

Neil Williams

Prof Neil Williams PSM
Professor, University of Wollongong
President, Australian Geoscience Council

I hope all readers had a relaxing and enjoyable break over the summer vacation period and that you have all returned to workplace refreshed and full of enthusiasm for the new work year.

Elsewhere in this issue is the fantastic news that the Australian Government, through the Department of Industry, has provided Australian Science Innovations with a one-off grant of $100,000 to run the inaugural Australian Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad Competition in 2014/2015. This is very exciting news for all of us with a love of the geosciences, and the Australian Geoscience Council is giving its enthusiastic support to the inaugural Earth and Environmental Olympiad with an additional grant of $30,000. The Council anticipates that the Olympiad will generate a great deal of interest amongst students and their teachers right across Australia.

On a related subject I am fielding an increasing number of questions from students, parents and teachers about careers prospects in the geosciences. The questions are being prompted by a growing number of reports in the media about the end of the mining boom and the retrenchment of geoscientists. Unfortunately the mining industry, a big employer of geoscientists in boom times, is a cyclical industry and in times of low commodity prices many professionals, some of whom are geoscientists, become underemployed.

My response to the questions is to acknowledge the cyclic nature of the resources industry, but to point out that employment options for geoscience graduates today are far more diverse than they were when I graduated as a geologist in 1970. Back then new geoscience graduates tended to either work for petroleum or mining companies, for government geological surveys, or for universities and schools as teachers and researchers.

Today, however, as well as these employment options, new geoscience graduates are also finding challenging and interesting jobs in environmental management, emergency management, waste disposal management and planning, financial and investment services, urban planning and a range of other positions involving the use of geographic information systems (GIS).

If a student has a passion for learning about our planet and the geological forces that contribute to life on earth and modern society, then I would encourage them to follow that passion. Enthusiastic professionals will invariably find rewarding employment in their spheres of interest, and the Science Olympiad program managed by Australian Science Innovations is a great opportunity for enthusiastic students to learn about future career possibilities.

Editorial

The Geoscience Education session planned for the AESC in the Infrastructure, Service & Community theme is calling for abstracts, but hurry, submissions close March 14th! Professor Iain Stewart, Geoscience Communication at Plymouth University (UK), will be a Plenary speaker and having seen his presentations at the 34th IGC in Brisbane in 2012 I can recommend attending just to hear him speak. I hope to be there too and I look forward to sitting through a range of presentations addressing topics and issues from all sectors of the Geoscience Education community at the convention. Visit the AESC website, register and submit your abstract now!

The New Year heralded more turmoil for the national curriculum with the federal government implementing a review of all national curriculum documents produced by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) to date. Over the last few years ACARA has done an excellent job of generating a variety of new, nationally orientated, curriculum documents including F-10 Science and Senior Earth and Environmental Science in consultation with all stakeholders through numerous iterations. This is in contrast to the 2 person review committee who were appointed January 10 this year and who are currently examining submissions to the review which was supposed to close February 28 but appears to have been extended until March 14. You can read the terms of reference here.

I hold some concerns about the intent of this review and the impact it may have on F-10 Science and especially Senior Earth and Environmental Science. The committee is due to report back by mid year but provide a preliminary report to the minister by March 31. At this stage we can only hope that the submissions they receive and more importantly act on do not negatively impact on the quality of science and Earth and Environmental Science being delivered under the recently adopted and barely bedded in national curriculum documents. At least with the submission date extended to March 14 it is not too late to add your voice through the on-line submission form. While the minister plans to discuss the final report with the states and territories later in the year and plans to see recommended changes implemented in 2015 it appears there will be no opportunity for other stakeholders to engage in further consultation or to appeal the decisions made.

Geoscience Education News & Reviews

 Professor Iain Stewart to speak at the Australian Earth Science Convention
WA BIF

Presenter of the highly acclaimed BBC television series How Earth Made Us; How To Grow A Planet; Rise of the Continents and many others, Professor Iain Stewart, will be in Newcastle this July to present a plenary session at the Australian Earth Science Convention (AESC). Professor of Geoscience Communication at Plymouth University (UK), Iain Stewart has an amazing ability to engage the public and fellow professionals alike and his presentation alone will be reason enough to attend the AESC.

The AESC will see presentations under six themes including the theme of Infrastructure, Service & Community which will have an Education session.

Other Plenary Speakers at the AESC include well known palaeontologist and head of the Evolution of Earth & Life Sciences Research Group at UNSW Professor Mike Archer, Chief Executive Officer of Geoscience Australia Chris Pigram and Director of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training at Flinders University Craig Simmons

A public forum, Energy 2050: The Future of Energy in Australia, will be held on Monday July 7th at 7:30 pm at the Civic Theatre, Newcastle. The forum panel will consist of world class speakers including Professor Iain Stewart; Dr Gary Ellem, University of Newcastle; Professor Ben Hankamer, University of Queensland, Institute for Molecular Bioscience; Dr Tony Irwin, Technical Director SMR Nuclear Technology and Dr Alex Wonhas, CSIRO.

Since the AESC coincides with July school holidays a series of public events are planned to promote earth sciences to the community. Newcastle Museum will host public lectures by some AESC speakers on popular topics such as fossils and meteorites. In addition to the museum's spectacular audiovisual presentation on coal mining and steel production, there will be a special display of minerals, fossils, interactive activities and posters to entertain and educate kids and adults alike. You might even bump into a roving dinosaur! Find the program here.

Registration is open, public forum tickets are available at early bird rates until April 4 and abstract submissions close March 14!

 Announcing the Australian Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad Competition

Australian Science Innovations are calling upon teachers to register their students for the Australian Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad Competition. The national competition will select and train talented secondary students in preparation to compete at the 2015 International Earth Science Olympiad in Russia. Year 10 and 11 students are invited to test their knowledge of Earth and environmental science by first sitting a national exam on 8 August. Successful students will be invited to attend a Summer School in January 2015 where students have an opportunity to work with others who are passionate about science. The work schedule will be intense and covers the equivalent of first year university studies in Earth and environmental sciences. High achieving students at the summer school, and those who perform well in final selection exams, will be invited to take one of four spots on the Australian Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad team and go on to compete at the International Earth Science Olympiads - the Olympic Games for Earth and Environmental Science students. For more information visit www.asi.edu.au.

 Report on the 3rd Australasian Universities Geoscience Educators Network (AUGEN) Workshop

Geoscience educators, education researchers, and industry sponsor representatives from across Australia met in Brisbane on 23-24 January for the 3rd annual Australasian Universities Geoscience Educators Network (AUGEN) meeting. The newly opened Science and Engineering Centre at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Gardens Point Campus served as an excellent venue for the two-day event, showcasing the future of technology-enhanced teaching spaces and public outreach. Participants engaged in a lively mix of formal session talks, informal group discussions, and a full day of hands-on workshops.

The session topics ranged from teaching introductory geology to ever-larger student cohorts, to geoscience in the "real world". The final session focussed on the major topics of course and curriculum design and redesign. Significant time was dedicated to sharing ideas for collaborative research in geoscience education and ongoing projects. The abstract volume (GSA Number 108) is available from the AUGEN website .

 International Geoscience Syllabus

A joint International Geoscience Education Organisation - International Union of Geological Sciences Commission on Geoscience Education report is available for download and can be used by anybody to enable planning and development of their own syllabus.

The syllabus is based on the following principles:

   •  it is based on existing curricula around the world since a syllabus based on existing curricula is most likely to be globally accepted
   •  the structure of the international syllabus is clearly apparent, even though such structure is not readily apparent in many existing curricula;
   •  the syllabus is concisely presented on just one page, since a concise syllabus is more likely to be acceptable to non-Earth science educators and teachers; more detail is also provided
   •  the syllabus does not aim to indicate progression.

The report is available here as a 1.9Mb word file.

 National Rock Garden - More federation rocks in place as Bendigo rock is stolen!
WA BIF

The recent arrival of the Western Australian Banded Iron Formation rocks as that states contribution the Federation Rocks display has been somewhat overshadowed by vandalism and theft. Unfortunately, on February 13th, thieves stole the reef quartz rock crowning the Victorian metasediments featured in the December issue of GeoEdLink. Anybody with any information on the whereabouts of the rock is urged to contact the police. The theft, which must have involved heavy lifting equipment and a ute, has unexpectedly raised the public profile of the National Rock Garden and inspired some interesting media reports and creative responses.


Western Australian Banded Iron Formation arrives on site.

Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad
Competition


The Australian Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad Competition will select and train talented secondary students in preparation to compete at the 2015 International Earth Science Olympiad in Russia.

Year 10 and 11 students are invited to test their knowledge of Earth and environmental science by first sitting a national exam on 8 August.

For more information visit www.asi.edu.au



Year 10 and 11 students are invited to test their knowledge of geology, geophysics, meteorology, oceanography, astronomy, and environmental sciences by first sitting a national exam. Those who perform well in the exam will be invited to attend an intensive summer school where their theory and practical skills will be developed further. Finally, a four-member team will be selected to compete at the International Earth Science Olympiad in Russia.

The international competition consists of theory and practical exams plus the International Team Field Investigation (ITIFI) - where teams of students from different countries work together to solve real life environmental problems.

Luke Bartlett from Yankalilla Area School said the ITIFI was the most memorable part of his experience at the 2012 International Earth Science Olympiad:
My group included students from various countries such as Romania, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and the Ukraine. I was appointed leader of our group due to English being my first language. My group won the international cooperation award, which we were ecstatic about.
Team mate Maddi Mellow, also from Yankalilla Area School believes the international competition changed her in many ways:
I have developed a deeper interest in Earth science, my confidence has improved and my understanding of other cultures broadened. I learned a lot about geology during the trip. Going on the field trips around Argentina developed my understanding of geological phenomena and how humans interact with, and affect natural systems.

Australian Science Innovations has prepared teams to compete at the International Science Olympiads for twenty five years. The Olympiad competition helps develop Australia's young scientific talent, with many alumni going on to become leading research scientists, science educators, health professionals and engineers. Chair of Australian Science Innovations, Dr Gunilla Burrowes, believes the inclusion of Earth and environmental science into the science Olympiad program is recognition of the critical role the discipline plays in combating the energy, environmental and economic challenges facing Australia, and the need to nurture future leaders with the expertise to tackle them.
We encourage all students with an interest and ability in Earth and environmental science to take part. Australia will need strong leaders in this field, and the Olympiad program is a proven way to identify our most gifted young scientists and develop their talents, said Gunilla.

Teachers must register students in the Australian Science Olympiad Competition before 16 July 2014. For more information visit www.asi.edu.au
This Inspiring Australia initiative is supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry partnership with Australian Science Innovations. As the Peak Council of geoscientists in Australia, the Australian Geoscience Council is proud to also support the inaugural Australian Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad.
