Nice. Is it only for Australian institutions. Is there anything similar you are planning for NZ?

Hi Everyone,

Questacon has a virtual excursion for your classrooms starting from next week and they are looking for more classes to get involved.

Mission Astronautica is a FREE digital program with 5 sessions running over 6 weeks. Over the course of the program they set the students the challenge of making a neutrally buoyant object, and run workshop sessions that will help them achieve that goal. They also hold a launch and finale event where the students get to meet the other participating schools, share what they have done and talk to astronaut Clay Anderson about how neutrally buoyant objects have helped him get to space!
 
The dates for the project are the 30th of July, the 6th of August, the 13th of August, the 27th of August and the 17th of September. The sessions run on Thursdays, and apart from the launch and finale events which are scheduled for 10am the times are negotiable.  
 
To book in visit https://www.questacon.edu.au/outreach/programs/virtual-excursions/mission-astronautica.  Or if you are interested please send an expression of interest to digitaloutreach@questacon.edu.au

This is a fantastic course for primary school teachers everywhere.
 
We are re-launching the free F-6 Digital Technologies MOOC for teachers on the 31st July. It would be awesome if everyone could share this among their networks & let their school leadership know about it so others are aware! :-) Thanks  #free   #PL

Great brunch. Delicious poached eggs

Great until the wedding descended on the resort. There was no warning when we booked that they would be having a giant party so it turned from a quiet, relaxed holiday to backpacker Sairee beach. Not impressed that they only informed us on the day. The rooms are stacked right on top of the restaurant so the noise travels straight up and you can't avoid it. This is the most expensive place to stay on the island, and the food & beverage are very very expensive for what you get/compared to the rest of the island. Considering what we spent on diving & our stay I'm very disappointed. Make sure you get it in writing that there will be no weddings or parties if you are going here for peace and quiet.

Fantastic food. The 'strange flavour white cut chicken' is to die for. The best surprise dish on the menu. Cocktails are great too.

Despite being a "5 star" hotel there are several things lacking in experience. The hotel is great in decor and amenities, but is flawed in how it operates with regards to business travelers and events. The noise from a function at the floating restaurant (onsite and owned by the hotel) went on until well after 1.30am in the morning. Despite complaints they did nothing because they took a booking until that time. If they aren't going to double glaze the windows then they shouldn't be able to hold events with loud music running until after mid-night - it compromises the guest experience. Will NEVER stay here again.

Great breakfast before grocery shopping. The poached eggs with goat feta and mushroom was fantastic. Shame its inside but don't overlook it as the food is great. The staff are super friendly also.

Great experience with the dive instructors, however the shop administration and owner lets it down. They are incredibly helpful while getting you to sign up for a course, but loose interest after they have your money. We've had a series of incorrect dates provided and had to clarify things umpteen times with them. Today was the last straw. Giving me an incorrect wetsuit size meant 5 hours of sitting in the car while others dived. While they did refund my money there was no apology from the owner who was manning the store. Apparently it's my fault for being a woman (and hard to fit) and not buying my own. My bad for thinking booking the correct suit 2 weeks in advance and paying for it guaranteed service. Will not use the shop again.
