How does it work?

The Discovery Voyager team comes to you, wherever you are in northern NSW. Our catchment is from the Queensland border in the north to around Muswellbrook in the south, and from the coast to the Castlereagh Highway in the west.

Based on travel times and the vast distances between schools in our region, we situate ourselves in a location to engage with proximate communities in a specific week, usually schools within 100kms of each other. Please view our calendar to see when we’re in your area, and register your interest on our booking form

We run curriculum-aligned activities in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) that are ~45 minutes long for up to 30 students in each activity. Whether we deliver one, or multiple activities to your school a small charge of $3.00 per student means that everyone can join in! Typically, we run two or three concurrent activities, with one rotation before recess (in 90 minutes) and repeat this between recess and lunch. We are relatively flexible however, and can work with you to make your day of discovery the best it can be.

For schools

We adapt to your bell times and class sizes. We bring one facilitator per activity, and expect that classroom teachers are present; teachers know their students better than we do, and we rely on their relationship with students to help run a smooth session.

For community

We can add something different to your community event. Get interactive, discover the processes that drive life on earth, and marvel at the nature of science. Our team can set up activities at carnivals, community events and open days to keep active minds and hands occupied.

Risk Management

We understand that learning about our natural and modified world can involve some risks. We think it’s important to acknowledge these, learn how to manage them effectively while taking calculated risks with splendidly exciting outcomes in order to learn best.
