The first of, hopefully many, Geogramblings interviews! I talk to Kate O’Donnell from the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco for Discover the World Education’s “International Connections” TeachMeet (broadcast on Thursday 11th June 2020). This blog post gives the full 10-minute edit of the interview, where you can get some examples of teaching & learning resources for your Science, Geography lessons and beyond, no matter where you are in the world! If you like ‘geographers’ interviewing ‘geographers’, a plug is also given to a rather Curious Geographer!
NEW VIDEO: The Anthropocene: Does Arrogance Outlast Decay?
An quirky presentation for Odd Salon “DECAY”, an Exploratorium After Dark Residency. Blurb: Humans have been a ‘force of nature’ for only a few thousand years, depending on who you listen to. So it is arrogant to suggest a whole new geological epoch based on our actions? What human artifacts will be left after millions of years of decay?
It is with excitement & pleasure that I will be part of the line-up of Odd Salon’s “Decay”, an Exploratorium residency for their After Dark programme. It’ll be fun and quirky, as well as educational! Click to find out more.

🆕📽️🌍🗣️ On-location video blog! Sustainability in San Francisco – Examples from around the Bay Area of some of sustainable buildings, organisations, networks and communities. This blog features the Exploratorium museum and Urban Ore ‘ecopark’ amongst others. It was filmed before the coronavirus lockdowns, and so also gives an update how these examples are faring and what they are doing to keep going.
The final day of #GAeConf20 caused my mind to blow on several ocassions. Corn-starch glaciers, twisty graphs, and more challenge from a radical geographer. It’s been quite a ride. Thank you, Geographical Association! #geographyteacher

In relation to my previous post, I wanted to focus on one of the Exploratorium Teacher Institute STEM NGSS Conference sessions in more detail as it is directly relevant to all UK GCSE Geography syllabuses. Also it was a pretty cool piece of professional development and worth sharing with folks back…
