Nature, Science and Culture Event at Alithia
August 9, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Nature Play Academy will run a FREE one hour workshop in Alithia’s new forest!
Erin is a qualified educator and forest school facilitator, she will bring: slack-line (balance line) and swings, flint and steel fire bowls and whittling equipment (for beginners and advanced) to make spears and bows + arrows. A straw bale target will be set up.
After a break for food, to get everyone inspired for Science Week in mid-August, we will also hold a workshop making volcanoes from various materials and lava eruptions etc. Our mentor is a qualified educator who loves all things science and will cater the play-based activities to inspire 4 – 12 year olds. This is a chance to weave fun hands-on scientific experimentation, chemistry and engineering, while pondering current volcanic eruptions around the globe (geography) and the landscapes that were created from volcanic activity (historical events). The team behind Alithia aim to create opportunities for interdisciplinary play-based projects and ignite curiosity.
As this will be the first event at the Alithia site, we will be joined by Michael Jarrett from the Muurraby Language Centre for a Welcome to Country (and possibly some story and language).
Alithia aims to inspire nurturing environments through sharing free info on positive communication tools for those interested.
