Ancient Science (K-10)

$16.00Price

Modern science meets traditional wisdom.

  • Excursion Info

    Ancient Science is a learning experience which comprises a range of indigenous learning activities conducted on the banks of Nookenburra (Herdsman Lake), which was a traditional Nyungar camp ground. Dreaming-time stories and cultural history lessons from Nyungar Aboriginals provide a bridge of common understanding between contemporary and traditional thinking, breaking down cultural barriers as students learn about the modern and ancient ecological footprint.

     

    Participants will be empowered from this learning experience with an understanding that they have much value to contribute to environmental science and participation in WA’s sustainable growth.
