AARNet was a project partner with the Powerhouse Museum, the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at UNSW and the Australian Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney for the development of the Mars Lab (a recreation of the Mars landscape and a robotics lab inside the Museum).

Zoom simplifies access to videoconferencing for schools because it is firewall friendly and easily accessible from all classrooms within a school and most importantly, it’s easy for teachers to use.
