‘Talking Eds’, Episode 11: STEAMy on the Street, US-style sports scholarships and the sedentary century

This week on a jam-packed Episode 11 of Talking Eds, the team from Early Learning Review, Education Review and Campus Review unpack the new STEAMy new Sesame Street initiative, dissect the US college sports scholarship system and discuss solutions to this sedentary century, courtesy of some interesting UQ research.

In Part 1, Loren kicks us off with a discussion of how Sesame Street is leading the new STEAM revolution. STEAM is like STEM but with an extra ‘A for Arts’ thrown in to be more inclusive. James leads Part 2 by chatting about how former wheelchair basketball Paralympian Bridie Kean is hoping to replicate some of the US’s intercollegiate sports systems, which uses scholarships to increase competition and participation. Part 3 involves me reflecting on a UQ researcher’s findings that we all need to increase out exercise output five-fold.
