Test survival skills by working in teams to create shelters that withstand the harshest elements!

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 3-12

Our Shelter Building Incursion provides an opportunity for students to develop their team building skills by working towards a common goal. Students will be required to design their shelter so that it works within their budget whilst consider various design elements including suitability of materials.  Students shelter must protect their whole team from the harshest weather conditions including Hurricane Supreme!

Students will learn about various types of human-made and natural shelters and discover why they are built the way they are. Students must also use their Shelter Building money wisely and brainstorm needs vs wants, calculating refunds and exchanges. All requiring communication, negotiation and team work to complete their task successfully.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I can’t praise Gabbie highly enough. She quickly established rapport with the students and had them captivated for the entire session!

Heathdale Christian College

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Brent, your enthusiasm was infectious and the students absolutely loved the four experiences you set out. The feedback from all of the teachers involved was positive and they noted how well you explained the ins and outs of a billy cart to the students. Thanks so much, we will definitely look to use you again in the future and will spread the word where possible.

Heathdale Christian College

Thanks to Mel, the students loved the experience. It's great to know that they will remember the experience and have a vice (their take-home crystals) to use to bring them happy thoughts in times of sadness/anger! Hopefully we will have a unit next year that will be enhanced by one of your programs.
