Schools in space program

Bring your students along to our school sessions.

Our new Schools in Space program is being piloted at Discovery Centre. The program is intended for school year levels 7 to 12. If you would like to bring your primary school class, we ask that the teacher attend a general session first.

We offer three types of experiences, school sessions, digital sessions, and workshop sessions available between:

  • 10am and 11:30am Monday to Friday.

Teachers can book a session by emailing our team at with:

  • year level
  • group size including adults and students
  • choice of session (standard, workshop or virtual).

Our school programs are free of charge.

You will then be sent a Trybooking link to secure your session. Please note school bookings must be made at least two weeks in advance.
