How do humans impact life around us? How do we know? Most importantly, what can we do about it?

Students will explore these questions in our new interactive virtual program exploring the use and importance of science and sustainability. Science helps us to find out about the world around us- what can it tell us about how our world is changing? Students will explore case studies relating to our environment and find out how scientists and researchers apply scientific knowledge to uncover global changes and human impacts.

Utilising this knowledge, students will develop ideas for change, hearing about environmental campaigners and be left with the task of designing a campaign for environmental change to support sustainability at school, which can be completed during class after the session.

Student experience

Students will

  • Engage directly with a museum educator with a private class link
  • Identify how science helps us to find out about the world around us 
  • Take learnings from virtual session and apply them to in-class activity to design a campaign at school that promotes sustainability.


Students can connect virtually from individual devices or devices shared in small groups. The classroom teacher is responsible for sharing the meeting link with students to allow access to the meeting.
