Education Program Questions

Can we have the incursion inside?
Animals Galore and Bugs Galore
– Yes definitely. As we primarily hold and carry the animals, they are not running around making a mess on the floor.
Rock Pool Galore – We have refined our set up specifically to have indoor library shows.
This program involves lots of water!
We put down rubber backed picnic rugs to catch any spilt water and have lots of towels around for the children to use. 
At the end we use mini pumps to get all the water out of the rock pools and into containers for the water to be taken away. If we can have a door to outside nearby it will help with the pack up process.

 

How early do you arrive to set up?
Animals Galore and Bugs Galore
– We have very little to set up, so only arrive 5-10min before our scheduled start time.
Rock Pool Galore – With more equipment to bring in for this program, we arrive about 20min before our scheduled start time. If possible, easy and close access between our vehicle and the show area. We have lots of equipment to bring in, including about 90kg of salt water! 

How many children can be involved?
We strongly advise taking bookings for the incursions. Don’t forget the parents will also be there, so you can almost double the number.
Animals Galore and Bugs Galore – Maximum 35-40 children.
Rock Pool Galore – Strictly maximum 35 children. This is based on the number of children that will fit around the rock pools we set up for this incursion.
