Our next Imaginarium participant profile is Georgia, a Year 3 student with a passion for learning who currently attends a primary school north of Perth.
Georgia said she likes how the Imaginarium courses open her mind and challenge her.
Georgia is captivated with horses. She regularly goes horseriding and loves to read books and watch funny videos featuring horses. During the Animaliers school holiday course, she created a 3D sculpture of a horse and has continued to create animated movies at home with her horse.
Georgia has plenty of ideas about where she sees herself when she is older.
“A famous horse rider and a Science, Phys Ed and Mathematics teacher as I love learning new things and meeting other people,” she said.
One of Georgia’s character strengths is her ability to persevere through complex challenges, demonstrating resilience in tasks where success is not guaranteed.
This helped when Georgia participated in the school holiday Animatronics course. She was able to learn new programming skills with robotics equipment, and apply her creative thinking skills to consider how she could utilise the robot in the field to observe animal behaviours, like real scientists do.
Georgia said her strengths included mathematics, horse-riding, Science, drawing and working with digital technologies, and she thinks her friends would have plenty of positive words to describe her.
“Arty, enthusiastic, smart, creative and positive,” Georgia said.
When asked who inspires her, Georgia took a moment of contemplation before answering with David Attenborough.
“He is able to capture the beauty of animals in their natural environment, which is quite tricky,” she said.
