Programs Offered

The Museum Learning Program offers three distinct programs for Year 2 and Year 3.

All Year 2 will participate in the Welcome to Museums and Museum in a Box Program.
The Year 2 programs are:

  • Welcome to Museums and Museum in a Box (history)
  • Museum in a Box Extended (history)
  • Exploring Wireless Hill (geography and mathematics)
  • Introduction to telecommunications (history)

All Year 3 students will participate in the Transport Over Time.
The Year 3 programs are:

  • Transport Over Time (history)
  • Mapping Wireless Hill (geography and mathematics)
  • Telecommunications- Talking to the World (history)

Schools book the local history program and choose from one of the other programs to complete their session.  The geography programs - Exploring Wireless Hill and Mapping Wireless Hill - are outdoor activities and are recommended in the drier months.

The standard Year 2 Museum in a Box Program is completed at school after the visit. There is the option of a full day session of the Year 2 Museum in a Box Extended Program which allows students to plan and construct their project entirely at Wireless Hill on the day.  This option is only available for groups up to 50 students and requires specific preparation at school in the lead up to the excursion.  The full day Year 2 Museum in a Box Program is $14 per student prior to 1st July 2016 and $17 per student from 1st July 2016 onwards.
