Fenella Colyer - teaching Physics

From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 17 November 2013

Fenella Colyer this week won the Prime Minister's Science Teacher Prize, worth $150,000, for her success teaching physics at Manurewa High School - a particularly welcome achievement for Fenella, who wasn't allowed to take physics when she was a secondary student. She talks to Chris about the particular challenges and joy of making physics relevant and accessible to students in a multicultural decile 2 school.
