Mr Jake Clark (USQ PhD student) will introduce children to the wonders of space and our universe through the Build-A-Planet workshop. Learn about the surfaces, interiors, climates and conditions on different planets, and have lots of fun while you do it!

Mr Jake Clark loves talking about science as much as conducting it and would consider himself to be a scientist and a science communicator. He has previously worked at Questacon, Australia's National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra. There, he travelled around Australia, presenting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) shows and workshops to primary schools, high schools and the broader Australian public. Through his new project, the Build-A-Planet Workshop, Jake is concentrating on bringing STEM into the lives of the younger community members, to help foster a new generation of planet hunters.
