A world of museum experiences at home
If you’re feeling like a cooped up critter or a nervous numbat, Melbourne Museum can relate. Whilst Melbourne Museum’s doors might be closed, there’s still a whole lot of magic going on. They’ve curated their best online content for you to enjoy from the couch!
Zoos Victoria are so excited to launch Zoo Education Online. They’ve got a whole lot of new online learning activities, resources, webinars and live stream animal access to help with real-world (distance) learning.
STEAM activities for home based learning; use the link to find learning ideas that families can do at home together or students can do themselves. This list has been compiled by [email protected] using many other resources (some are linked below) as inspiration.
Science is all about exploring how things work. It’s often best learned through hands-on experiments and observation. This makes it a fun and easy subject area for kids to dive into while at home. Parents don’t need chemistry or biology degrees to help their kids learn science, curiosity and playfulness go a long way when it comes to science. A willingness to get a little mess also helps! Here’s a list of online science resources to help kids learn and have fun while at home.
1. The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
2. NASA’s Langley Research Center
3. The National Museum of the United States Air Forces
