Flow’s educational excursions

Flow education excursions are an interactive and exciting way for school groups to learn about their region. Facilitated by expert FBA staff members, students will be immersed in an engaging educational experience for one and a half hours in the newly renovated Flow Centre.

The centre is bursting with new features and state-of-the-art technology. Interactive screens are loaded with hundreds of stories and fun facts, virtual reality headsets are waiting to transport visitors, and old-fashioned science experiments are ready to amaze.

Excursions cater up to 25 students of any age and are tied to the Australian School Curriculum. There are six different excursion topics to choose from see below for more information.
