Event description

Sydney Science Trail: Diverse Learners Day

Presented by the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the Australian Museum, the Sydney Science Trail’s Diverse Learners Day is designed for groups requiring a more flexible timetable or higher educator to student ratios, such as home-school groups, support classes, EAL/D students or students with diverse needs. This day is open to students across Years 3–11.  There are no minimum bookings and educator ratios are flexible.

With live on-site activities spread across the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the Australian Museum, workshops with hands-on approaches to learning and thrilling stage shows, the day delivers fun and inspiring science in smaller group sizes and with more support for students to learn at their own pace.
