School Workshops

We have been running workshops in schools for many years. The focus of these workshops is generally around science, environmental education and Enviro-Stories.

We aim to provide an all-round learning experience with our workshops by incorporating fun activities, quality scientific learning and getting kids to experience the concepts being taught either through experiments or games/role play.

Currently, we can provide workshops to school in the East Gippsland region of Victoria. Please contact us if you are interested in having us come to your school.

Sessions times

Sessions can last from 1-1.5 hours. You can create a day of fun for your class or school by “piggy-backing” sessions together to last the entire day. Or, we can be part of a school excursion and run an onsite activity like “Water World”.

Session resources

We provide the necessary resources for your students to actively participate in each workshop session. Both Peter and Kelly will be there to direct the workshop, however teacher supervision of the students is required.

Costs

Costs will vary depending on the session, if you are requiring multiple sessions and distance travelled to your school.

Please contact us directly and we can provide you with a quote that is customised to your needs.
