We’re delighted to announce that Chelsea Hayward who will be taking on the role of SO National Coordinator. Chelsea has been involved for many years in a range of SO functions including presenter, coordinator, content developer and trainer. Chelsea will facilitate the delivery and support of EWB Australia’s School Outreach Program through the volunteer network working closely with Curriculum Coordinators and region and chapter SO coordinators.
Chelsea will be supported by two Co-Coordinators of Curriculum – welcome Claire Disney and Laura Deaves!
Claire was first involved with EWB in 2007 with the UNSW chapter, delivering School Outreach, as the Chapter president and in a range of other EWB projects. To completely undersell Claire, she holds a PhD in Photovoltaic Engineering and has experience as a strategy consultant, university lecturing, design thinking coaching. Now based back in Australia, it is great to have Claire back as an active member of the EWB network.
Laura’s entree to EWB was through the Komatsu Live Your Dream project and played an instrumental role leading the pilot content integration. She has a long term passion for student-centric education, has volunteers as a special education teacher’s aide, worked as a tutor for primary school students through to university physics, in addition to her involvement with EWB’s School Outreach program.
Claire and Laura will work with Chelsea and the region and chapter SO Coordinators to ensure that EWB Australia’s School Outreach educational resources enable the School Outreach impact model.
