Our Incursions

Our incursions bring science to life!  Students get hands-on in our visits and we use a variety of teaching strategies to cater for different learning styles. 

Our aim is to make incursions just as much fun as they are educational... we harness kids' natural enthusiasm and curiosity to ensure that plenty of good times (and a little bit of dirt, slime and generally fun stuff) is all part of the session. With years of experience, we reckon we have the balance just about right!

All incursions align with the Victorian Curriculum and link to other cross-curricular priorities including maths, literacy, history, and design & technology. 

We supply FREE pre- and post-incursion lessons, giving you three lessons for the price of one!  The post-incursion activity also includes an assessable task, (think of how useful this will be when it's report-writing time!).
