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.
