AUCAOS member Dr Paul Shaw joins CSIRO Scientists in Schools program

Dr Paul Shaw recently joined the CSIRO Scientists in Schools program. The program appealed to him as it allowed him to enter a partnership with a local school with a view towards making a lasting difference to STEM education.

While a large proportion of students show a general appreciation for science they do not necessarily relate this to their own lives or consider being a scientist. Paul has been working with Year 3 so far teaching them about light absorption and heat transfer!
