Research output: Other contributionOther


The Stem Cells Australia Teaching Resource was created to bring real world and engaging stories of scientific endeavour into the classroom. This resource has been designed around stories of the work from 23 prominent stem cell research laboratories across Australia featured on the Stories from the labs page and the Australian Stem Cell Research video wall page of the Stem Cells Australia website. These exemplars offer the opportunity to connect secondary school students to real world examples of the work of scientists as they address current issues and authentic needs in biomedical science.
This comprehensive resource is organised as a series of ‘Cases’ which feature stories of innovative research and candid interviews with diverse stem cell scientists. These Cases offer exciting and real-world contexts for illustrating the nature of science. Diversity, collaboration, failure and problem solving are highlighted as the realities of scientific work. Each Case celebrates the important dispositions and characteristics of scientists such as passion, curiosity, interest and a desire to help others.
