Earth and Space K to 2

Earth and Space K to 2

It’s all about the seasons & observable changes!

  • How does Earth’s tilt affect the seasons? Why is the Earth tilted anyway?
  • How do daily changes affect the environment? Why is daylight a different length in summer vs. winter?
  • How do clouds form and how do we measure the weather? Why do some clouds spin?

All this and more is covered in this hands-on school science incursion where students can explore these topics in detail. Students will gain an appreciation of how the world we experience is influenced by the seasons & daily cycles. Full risk assessments available on request.

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