School Incursions

Thinkways offers exciting, challenging and hands-on workshops at your school in the field of human anatomy for inquisitive school children. They will explore the human body like never before which will develop anatomical knowledge and foster critical and creative thinking. Maximum fun and exploration but not for the fainthearted! Due to the nature of these workshops, they are ideal for small groups of up to 20 children of higher learning potential and who are eager to explore such a unique experience.

The workshops are run by a fully qualified, registered teacher with over 10 years experience in delivering specialised gifted and talented educational programs (with over 200 classroom dissections!) who is assisted by experts in their field.
