About the program

Our Exploring life science program (which is split into two modules) is a fantasic after school activity for children ages 7 - 12 who are interested in science, geography, space and sustainability.

Learning is discussion based and all content is designed to have a positive emotional response. Your child will learn all about the natural world through science and explore all the ways each of us can do our part to protect Earth now and into the future. 

The program is designed to supplement the NSW Geography and Science Syllabus and supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The program is delivered through group workshops - which are home to a small number of children (4 - 8 students per class).
