Project Codium

Codium fragile 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. DART Virtual Q and A’s with the Experts:
Scheduled Video conferences where students can put all their burning questions to our Seaweed and Communication and Design Experts
  1. The Project Codium STEM Day at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
A hands on day where children work with Scientist Dr Yola Metti, First Nations Elder, Uncle Steve and create their Codium prototype with leading designers from Erth
  1. The “Under the Sea’ exhibition at The Calyx
Through participation on the STEM Day or the living learning platform students will 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 fragile and the intertidal environment?
