In 1960, Perth was dubbed the ‘City of Light’ when its residents turned on their lights to welcome astronaut John Glenn as he passed over the city as he orbited Earth. With its long summer days, Perth is also known for its natural light. But what do we know of light, this phenomenon crucial for our very existence? How might we get to know light better? What might paying attention to light set in motion?
Join us as we embark on a collective project to explore the possibilities of light in our pedagogical contexts in Perth.
In the third session, Tuesday 9 November 6.30pm, we will come back together to discuss your ‘encounters with light’ documentation and research and consider different ways that these conversations could be presented to your community for example a banner, an article for The Challenge magazine, a presentation.
We are looking forward to hearing how you and the children in your centre have encountered light over the past few months. A short sharing with the group would be fantastic – this could be with a few photos, a short video and/or documentation that you have gathered. It could also be about how you approached the project, what resources you used, what you found rewarding and challenging and maybe where to now.
If you have time a small plate of finger food to share would be welcome.
We hope you can join us in this exciting project!
