Project Codium

Codium needs our help!

Project Codium is a Stage 2 and Stage 3 STEM project that immerses students in Design Thinking, challenging them to build a community awareness prototype that aims to protect Codium fragile and the intertidal ocean zone (sometimes known as rock pools).

How it works

Students will engage in Design Thinking through
  1. Project Codium Living Learning: 
An online interactive resource which scaffolds the Design Process, builds Living World knowledge, and provides a platform for real world application

  1. Seaweed Adaptations and Survival Virtual Excursion or Onsite Excursion
Discover the amazing world of seaweed by learning how it grows, survives and reproduces in its watery habitat, producing up to 70 per cent of the worlds oxygen.  Fine tune scientific skills by creating your very own Herbarium voucher for further observation.

3. Display in the “Inside the Tide’ exhibition at The Calyx Through engagement with the STEM program via the Virtual Excursion series and the Living Learning platform students can create a prototype that will go on display to the global community that visit the Calyx.
Through Project Codium your students will:
Critically think!
Communicate their learning to protect vulnerable coastal species!
Influence THOUSANDS OF VISITORS in person or through virtual tours at The Calyx!
Evaluate and reflect!


How might we build community awareness to protect Codium and the intertidal environment?
