Activities, Workshops & Incursions For School Melbourne

How Programs Run

Our programs can be tailored to meet your particular needs or inquiry units. We require a hall or multi purpose room with double door access. We can also set up in an outdoor area if the area is undercover.

We arrive 40 minutes earlier to set up our equipment and we generally require 6 to 8 tables for our set up. As our equipment is all life size, we require access and parking for a large van, preferably near the set up area.

We cannot carry our equipment up flights of stairs, even though 2 or 3 steps is OK.

We generally set up 6 activities splitting the children into 6 equal groups. As our activities are very hands-on we request 3 or 4 other staff to assist throughout the sessions.

The Incursion starts with us discussing the particular programme and how the activities tie in with the inquiry topic. After looking at the activities and discussing the students approach to each activity, and the challenges that they
will encounter, we commence the hands on part of the program.

Each group is assigned to an activity with approximately 15 minutes allowed to complete each task. Each group is rotated around to all the activities, until the program is over.

At the end of the Program we finish off with a short discussion and questions and answers.
