Event description

K’gari (Fraser Island) with Joe Grabowski

May 10th @ 1:00pm AEST

Off the coast of Queensland you’ll find K’gari (Fraser Island), at 122 kms in length, it is the world’s largest sand island. It’s the only place on Earth where tall rainforests grow on sand dunes at elevations of more than 200 metres (656 feet), and is home half the world’s perched lakes (lakes formed when depressions in dunes fill permanently with rainwater).

The K’gari dingoes may become the purest strain of dingo in Australia as they don’t encounter domestic dogs, so their conservation is of national significance.

Joe Grabowski is a science communicator and educator working to inspire the next generation of scientists and explorers. He is the founder of the non-profit Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants and in 2017, Joe was selected as a National Geographic Emerging Explorer and shortly after became National Geographic’s first Education Fellow.

An avid scuba diver for the past 15 years, he’s always looking for an excuse to sink beneath the waves.

There are several way to join:

  • Register for one of the limited camera spots and your students can interact directly with the speakers and ask their questions live.
  • If your students are not in the classroom and learning virtually, the educator can join in a camera spot and relay questions from their students as they tune in live.
  • You can also choose to tune in live via YouTube with your class and send in questions via the live chat. The events will record as well and be available to watch afterwards via a YouTube playlist.
  • All events will have live Kahoot! quizzes and your students can test their new learning while competing with students across the country.
