School Holiday Programme
Explorers’ Club Exploring the Depths Dive down deep into ocean science, and reach up high to touch the stars. We’re taking inspiration from James Cameron, as we explore the depths of the sea and the limits of space. Monday 30 September
Racing with Reptiles See you later, alligator. In a while, crocodile. We’d love to see you at the Museum these holidays as we learn about the racy life of reptiles. Tuesday 1 October
Living Environments The living world is all around us, even inside the Museum. Meet Tony, our Living Environments Officer and learn about his work caring for the creatures that call Otago Museum their home. Wednesday 2 October
Creepy Crawly Critters Creepy critters are all around us, but what do you know about their little lives? Come with us, as we creep into their tiny world. Thursday 3 October
Body of Art For centuries, people have decorated their bodies for entertainment and adornment. From body art and piercings, to make-up, hairstyles and fashion, explore the galleries to learn about the ways that cultures have expressed themselves through the ages. Friday 4 October
Retro Reboot We’re going back in time – want to join us? Experience the lives your parents lived and learn about the things they did for entertainment. Monday 7 October
Walking with Giants Gigantic things are all around us, including in the animal world. Learn about the giants that walk the Earth today, and those that did so in the distant past. Tuesday 8 October
Tech Team From transport to entertainment, technology shapes our world. Get inspired in the galleries and learn about coding with our new set of Sphero robots. Wednesday 9 October
Plant Power The life-giving power of plants is often underestimated, but we would be lost without them. Learn about the ways that plants make our lives possible. Thursday 10 October
Happy Halloween Don’t be scared of monsters – we’ll take care of you. Let’s get our scare on and prepare for the world’s spookiest holiday. Friday 11 October
