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, the history of coins and a tour of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery's exhibition This Too Shall Pass.

WHEN: Every second Wednesday during the school term from 9.15–10 am.

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.
