INSPIRATION. EDUCATION. CONSERVATION.
Our incursions are designed to supplement classroom learning by showing real-life examples of the topics you teach. Combining our animal expertise with your classroom knowledge, we can really help students engage with science and inspire them to make a positive difference.About Us
JOIN US IN GETTING KIDS BACK TO NATURE
We’re a passionate bunch at Reptile Encounters.
We realised how amazing it would be if we could start bridging the divide between kids and nature through our school programs and get them included as a fun-filled, inspirational and highly educational part of the school day.
We understand the time pressures on teachers and the challenges in accommodating all learning styles. Like you, we’re problem solvers here, and we’re sure our approach to fostering coexistence with nature and active learning can help tackle the problems many teachers face of student disengagement and disconnection. Over the years we’ve also noticed that those who have been taught to respect nature mirror this in their respect for fellow humans.
To make our incursions even more meaningful (and your life easier), we have carefully aligned all our school programs with the Victorian Curriculum.
Our Wildlife Ambassadors love to have fun! Combining their humour with extensive knowledge they will captivate your classroom so much that students won’t even realise they’re learning.
Our encounters will stick with your students for years to come. We often bump into people that remember us coming out to their school years ago – we’ve even had some come back to work for us!
Make A Difference
Activity shouldn’t stop once we leave the classroom. Our aim is to create little citizen scientists that are going to make a difference in the world. Ultimately we want to create a generation of better humans.
Our TC reptiles class was treated with a reptile encounter.
[Reptile Encounters] sent out some beautiful animals from crocs to stick insects; there was great variety!
Hi Josh, Just a big ‘Thank You’ for your presentation today. The children got so much out of it and really enjoyed the experience. The way you engaged the students and remembered so many names was great! We will definitely think of Reptile Encounters in the future when we cover this topic. Thanks again, The Prep – 2 Students and Staff From Belle Vue Park Primary School
Dear Josh, I just wanted to communicate with you, regarding our recent Reptile Encounter. I have to say it was the best show, of this type, I have experienced.
Hi Adam and Josh, I’d like to convey my thanks to the pair of you for the excellent presentation last week. All the prep teachers were similarly impressed and asked to send their thanks as well.
