PhoneLabs originated in the Australian Science and Mathematics School ( ASMS ) which has a strong commitment to student-led learning. It was developed by Sivam Krish with the support of Susan Hyde (Principal ASMS) and Glenys Thomson (Deputy Principal ASMS) who obtained our first funding from TeachSA. We also were supported by a flash grant from the Shuttleworth foundation to take PhoneLabs to a few schools world wide.
PhoneLabs is owned and managed by Sensibility Pty Ltd.
Sivam Krish is a researcher and educator bringing together his background in Aerospace Engineering, Design Education, and his entrepreneurial experience to transform STEM education into what it can be.
Sivam is currently an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Canberra.
Robert Fitzgerald has been a leader and innovator in the field of Information and Communication Technology Education (ICTE) for over 20 years working across the schools and university sector.
