UCTV Alive for Kids

UCTV Alive for Kids is an interactive online broadcast developed by the Peter Underwood Centre to provide children and young people with fun, extra-curricular learning opportunities. It is hosted by Dr Louise Grimmer from the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics at the University of Tasmania.

The show is delivered during class-time and covers a range of child-friendly topics. Past episodes have focused on everything from the endangered red handfish, volcanoes and sea birds, to Christmas marketing, glassblowing and a tour of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery's exhibition This Too Shall Pass.

WHEN: First Monday of the month during the school term from 2–2.30pm (AEST).

LOCATION: Online. Register via the link below.

FORMAT: Broadcasts are presented live via Zoom Webinar, with a Q&A segment so that classes have the opportunity to submit questions for the presenter to answer. Appropriate protocols are in place so there is no video / audio of the interactions from participants.

AUDIENCE: Year 5 and 6 students.

Upcoming episode Tasmania Reads - "Sea Country" by Aunty Patsy Cameron

UCTV is thrilled to announce a special webinar in collaboration with Tasmania Reads, taking place on Monday 6 March from 2:00 - 2:30pm (AEST).

During the broadcast, students will have the opportunity to celebrate local culture and the magic of storytelling with Aunty Patsy Cameron, a descendant of the Pairebeenne Trawlwoolway clan in Tasmania. Aunty Patsy will be reading from her book Sea Country and will be available to answer any questions students may have, live.
