All that the rain promises

People like to say that coral reefs are the rainforests of the sea because of their incredible biodiversity, but since coral reefs evolved first, why don’t we flip it around? Here’s a look at the importance of water for these coral reefs of the land.

  1. Hi Allison, thank you for these resources! I am a STEM teacher in Tasmania, Australia. My students are working on a project to showcase the work of STEM professionals. I was wondering whether you would be interested in sharing a short video clip on a Flipgrid about your inspirational work?

    The video clips will be used as prompts for students to engage in their own ‘passion projects’ using the topic ‘Game Changers and Change Makers.’ Their projects will be shared at our school community’s STEM fair during Science Week in August, and the Flipgrid videos from STEM professionals will form part of that display for families and community members to view.

    The idea behind the Flipgrid videos is to showcase a diverse range of people working or volunteering in STEM/STEAM fields, with the aim of connecting with the wider (local and global!) community as well as inspiring students to learn more about the world around them and exposing them to different ways that people use STEM knowledge and skills to make a difference in our world.

    If you are interested and can spare a few moments, the Flipgrid link is: and password is: STEMxFactor

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
