This episode, join Mark, Beccy and Mike as we engage in waaaaay too much Apollo 13 and space race geekery before finally getting on to the subject of constructionism, what it is, and why Mike seems to get in confused with all other words beginning with the letter ‘C’.

Could we have edited out the space geekery? Yeah probably, but it was too darn interesting not to. If you want to get straight to the pedagogy, you’d best skip straight to about the 22 minute mark. Also this episode nearly turned in to a love letter to Tom Hanks. If you know Tom, and he’d like to come on the show and chat about education then do chuck him our Twitter handle. He seems like a really nice bloke.

Rockets are cool, lets get people back on to the Moon. And Mars. There’s lots more space there and you can turn the music up as loud as you like without disturbing the neighbours.
