Just a quick post to tell you about our fabulous time at the 3RRR 102.7FM radio station on Sunday 25th November, where we got to tell everyone about the great time we are having with the Telescopes in Schools Program on the Einstein A Go-Go show with Dr Shane.
Joining us on the show were Year 9 student Caroline and her mum, Natalie, from Suzanne Cory High School and Year 11 Physics students, Monica and Tenisha, with Physics teacher, Louise Ankers, from Pascoe Vale Girls College.
We were all a bit nervous waiting out in the Green Room as we watched Dr Shane get ready for his show. We got to have a quick look in the studio before the program started and a rundown on how to talk into the mic. Then back outside to the green room where the nerves really started to ramp up. A very quick changeover from one segment to the next and we found ourselves in front of big microphones and headsets on.
I have to say that the nerves quickly dissipated as we got into the groove and before we knew it, our 10 min segment had run overtime and we were herded back out to the green room! They say time flies when you’re having fun, but boy! it goes really fast when you are talking on the radio.
The girls did such a great job speaking about their experiences with TiS and were pretty excited about having been on the radio. I can’t wait to hear about their superstar status back at school.
Of course if you were unable to be in Melbourne on Sunday because you live elsewhere or were stranded in the dessert with no radio, no internet connection and no satellite dish. Don’t worry, you can still listen to the show now an the podcast will be available soon.
Thank you to everyone who came on Sunday and especially the parents who brought the girls into the station, and thanks to Dr Shane and 3RRR for having us on the show!
