Caroline talks. “I’ve always been involved in education. Before I began developing Biobrain about a year ago, I was a biology teacher and text book author, but I wanted to offer a contemporary portable biology learning tool that was easy for kids to navigate and would keep them engaged. There was a lot of research to be done. Apps have changed greatly and many of the ones relating to biology were almost like PowerPoint presentations. That just wouldn’t work for secondary students who demand more of technology. Biobrain has been designed to cover the content of VCE Biology and IB Biology, although younger students can benefit from using it as well. Monash University has been a great supporter and will be using it with their first-year students during 2018. In addition to this, they are currently helping me develop Biobrain Chemistry to be released this year.”
This Honours in Science recipient (she did her Honours at the Peter MacCallum Institute where she researched breast cancer), revision lecturer for VCE Biology exams, and mentor for new biology teachers, has set her sights on Biobrain being the No.1 tool helping VCE students get excited about life and all its wonders. It’s easy to navigate, includes accurate biological diagrams, multiple choice questions and you can review your answers. Basically, it’s like a biology exam but with real technological grunt. The Biobrain app is ideal for last-minute revision and for students who misplace their class notes too. Smart hey? Your child will be feeling very clever too because they are in control of their learning. Makes sense?
