Earlier this week Hazer Group CEO, Geoff Pocock visited Rostrata Primary School in Willetton to talk to Mr Hill’s Year 6 class about alternative energy solutions.
Geoff spent almost an hour with the class giving a presentation and answering questions on the Hazer story and the impact it can have on future clean energy alternatives. After recently learning about hydrogen, graphite and different energy sources, the kids were eager to learn more. They had a number of questions for Geoff from asking whether the Hazer Process could make diamonds instead of graphite to what other catalysts were trialled before iron ore was decided on.

Rostrata Primary School is known for its exciting and innovative science program, which is led by award winning teacher, Richard Johnson. In February, world renowned scientist and leading academic, Stephen Hawking cited Mr Johnson one of the top 10 teachers in the world by naming him as a finalist for the Global Teacher Prize 2016. Mr Johnson has been praised for his passion for science at his school over the last decade.

Mr Johnson gave Geoff a tour of the school’s dedicated science, technology, engineering and mathematics laboratory, which features 3D printers, 3D pens and an augmented reality sandbox.
A special thank you to the teachers and students of Rostrata Primary School for having the Hazer team out for the morning.
