SHOWS

Our VCE incursions have been a hit with students across Melbourne and wider Victoria for years - they offer a ton of extra spice and excitement to the average school day, as well as being highly educational and informative. And even better than this, they are in fact specifically tailored to the Victorian curriculum, focusing on adaptations, evolution and genetics.

We love teenagers at Reptile Encounters, and we feel that we can play a part in creating better humans, by bringing them closer to nature. We know that the better they get to know the reptiles, invertebrates, marine life, mammals and birds making their home right here in Australia, the more they will care for them and the more they will care about their ongoing preservation.

Explore our enriching and exciting biology incursions for VCE students:

VCE Unit 1: Adaptations
