New science teachers graduate into their first job with minimal materials and support. Imagine if they were handed all the basic curriculum materials straight up - for free; all the basic lessons, practicals and textbook materials.
Adam is a Physics teacher at The Essington International Senior College – Charles Darwin University.
Adam is an award-wining science teacher who came late to his profession after starting out in the military. With a passion for Physics and Chemistry Adam has taught year’s 7 through to 12 across the public and private education sectors. Adam’s key motivation is changing the way students view the universe they live in and the lives they live via a scientific perspective – achieving curricular outcomes but not at the expense of wonder and excitement.
Adam has a Bachelor of Science with first class Honours in Chemistry from UNSW@ADFA and a Graduate Diploma of Teaching and Learning from CDU.
