Let’s dance.

• It was all about a cosmic tango for UniSQ’s Adriana Errico, who found her first exoplanet (and wrote a Conversation article about it)!

Tuesday

Tanya Dobson knows how to pitch it (clever)!

• The PhD researcher is seeking to understand how South African farmers are responding to climate change. You can read more about how she’s doing it via UniSQ News, of course.

It was Tania Tuesday, apparently.
• The Tania (with an I!) spoke to ABC Radio Qld about the education staff crisis. Also very clever.

Wednesday

An A+ for Associate Professor Stewart Riddle.
• A new Conversation article penned by the education expert discussed the current curriculum wars happening in Australia.

Get out those mosquito nets!
• Another day, another biosecurity risk. Professor Peter Murray was quoted in an ABC Online article about mosquito-borne virus Japanese encephalitis.

Thursday

Second star to the right and straight on til morning.
• Professor Jonti Horner was once again thrust into space with his explanation on the upcoming meteor showers, appearing on Nine News Queensland.
• He followed this up with a casual Conversation article on the same topic. All in a day’s work, really.

From the frontline to the home front.
• A nursing profile had us all in our feels as Harrison Mayall recounted his inspiration to become a nurse. One not to be missed.

Friday

You can believe everything you read online, right?
• A new Education Horizon grant to empower students through social media literacy is underway at UniSQ. You can read more about it here.

We’ve got more stars in our eyes.
• Meteor showers were trending again, with Professor Brad Carter interviewed by 7 News Brisbane (on the 4pm statewide bulletin!).
