We are currently taking bookings for school excursions. Not all excursions are being delivered as per the usual program due to rules outlined by NSW Health.

Please contact your National Parks education contact or the relevant local park office for more information.
This Kosciuszko gameshow school excursion for Stage 2 (Years 3-4) students in Kosciuszko National Park focuses on science. Students use the information they gather from display boards in the education centre to compete in a loud, outlandish game show. The students enjoy the challenge of a competitive game and the opportunity to barrack for their team.

Teachers will see that their students are learning and having fun at the same time. After the game show, the students can explore the hands-on displays in the Kosciarium. The students' work sheets (cheat notes) will be available for the teacher to take home.
