Does this mean I should contact Education Queensland and offer my services as a speaker? I'd rather not lecture to children, but maybe talking to some teachers might help clear up some of the misunderstandings about the project that seem to be endemic in EQ. Or would I need to be accredited by WM-au before I could count as a "volunteer guest"?
