Education programs

Challenge your students to ask critical questions and consider new perspectives and ideas.

WA Museum Boola Bardip's education programming is tailored for students from Kindergarten to year 12, with clear links to the Australian and Western Australian curriculum through a strong emphasis on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures, STEM and Sustainability and Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Students dive into complex issues that inspire context for real-world learning. Our team creates opportunities for exchange and collaboration — inviting inquiry, investigation and analysis.

With programs held inside exhibitions or our purpose-built Woodside Learning Studios, the Museum is the ideal atmosphere for students to create connections between world-class research and their developing knowledge of the world.
