The most engaging classroom inquiries begin with curiosity and wonderings that often take us wandering outside the classroom to explore, connect with ‘place’, find answers, ask more questions, and learn from experts. In these challenging times with restrictions to our favourite excursion venues, this webinar series will take you to some of our most popular places with online resources, mini-lessons, and virtual experiences to bring the experts into your classroom.

Registrations are essential, as the webinar link will be emailed to you the day before and due to the hands-on activities during this workshop, the recording of this webinar will only be sent to registered participants who attend on the day.

Other excursion venues in this series include Kings Park (Webinar #1), State Library of WA (Webinar #2), WA Museum (Webinar #3), Water Corporation (Webinar #4), DIY Tech Excursions (Webinar #5), Seven West Media (Webinar #6), Gold Industry Group (Webinar #7) and TBC Scitech, Fremantle Prison, some national museums, galleries, and libraries.
