Adventure + Learning

Online and on ground programs

We love science and environmental education so much that we share it with classrooms everywhere... like you’ve never experienced it before. Students engage with researchers and adventurers through Australian Curriculum aligned online lessons. Some will even end up on the ground in Fiji, the Tasmanian wilderness and flying over Antarctica.

Cirque 2 Sea

K-6 students we’re heading down river

Our major expedition in 2016 is to explore Tasmania’s Derwent River from mountain top right down to the sea. Primary school students will follow the adventure as a trickle turns into a torrent and we’ll explore water and landscape from walking boot to raft and kayak. Full lessons, in partnership with the Derwent Estuary Program, are now available and all Australian schools can connect with this watery adventure.

Fiji Power

Electrifying High School Students

Can you design a renewable energy system to keep the power going at a medical centre on a Fijian island? We need it to be reliable because it keeps vaccinations cold, and vaccinations save lives. If you’re a Year 9 or 10 student, complete the online assignment and you might be in the team that hit the ground to install the system in September and October. We have 4 places for students and a special teacher position to work with engineers and builders to make it happen.
