Australia Fest has brought together science communicators and educators in a unique project that will bring to life an innovative exhibition on maths and computational thinking. The project was conceptualised by Dr Stuart Kohlhagen, Senior Fellow of Science and Learning at Questacon (Australia’s National Science and Technology Centre), and presented in India in collaboration with the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM). It aims to extend the capacity of teachers in India to engage students in mathematics, problem solving and also in the area of computational thinking.
