ZooVentures brings interactive workshops to your Auckland school with an amazing range of exotic creatures and pets, covering many of the 'living world' curriculum topics, as well as providing inspiration for art and creative writing.
We deliver structured learning with high educational value – this is not just for the little kids!
One teacher describes it as 'like a zoo trip, but more hands on and no travel to organise'.
Workshops facilitated by a zoology graduate with a passion for inspiring children about animals and the environment.

During Rail Safety Week, look at the serious issues there have been involving trains in New Zealand and find out why rail safety should concern you. On this trip, meet people who are most involved with rail on a day-to-day basis and share your thoughts with them.
The more people who take trains the safer and less congested our roads will be. Plus, it's better for our health to get out and about and more sustainable for the planet to stop using cars quite so often.

You probably think of Taupō as a lake rather than a volcano. That's because 25,500 years ago the supervolcano erupted from a massive pancake of magma about 5km below the ground surface. When most of the magma had been erupted, the ground overhead couldn't be supported anymore and collapsed – leaving a massive depression in the middle of the North Island. The depression slowly filled with water, becoming Lake Taupō.
During this field trip you will join geologists who are trying to understand how our supervolcano works and what we need to do to prepare for an eruption.
