Introducing Chris La Rosa
Chris teaches at Tagai State College in the Torres Strait.
What is your teaching focus?
I live on Thursday Island where I work as a writer of science curriculum and teach Conservation & Land Management. Previously I was the Head of Science at the Secondary School here on the island where I taught STEM, Biology, Aquatic Practices and general science across the year levels.
What inspired you to be part of the Educator on Board program?
I was inspired to apply for the position of Educator on Board after friends on social media brought it to my attention. Those who know me, know that I am passionate about science and that I’m always up for travel and adventure, so I jumped at the opportunity to participate in a CSIRO research voyage.
What are you most looking forward to seeing aboard the vessel?
I’m excited about being involved in real, frontline science and bringing that to the wider community.
