Plants for Life Workshop

Plants for Life Workshop

Botany workshop for vacation care!

Hands-on Biology for kids!

A fun hands-on workshop where students investigate the structure & function of plants, how changes in certain species can indicate garden health as well as the growth of plants from germination through to pollination.

During this science visit, your kids will look at the garden biome, including the roles different insects play in the process of plant pollination, the breakdown of dead plant material and a look into some common pest species in Australia.

Time is spent on adaptations to a variety of climates as well as the stranger side of plants and the cellular differences between plants and animals.

Available as a science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!
