The students (and teachers) really enjoyed having the time to explore the voyage of the First Fleet and life as a convict in a variety of hands on activities. Thanks again!"
Nikki, Mentone Park Primary School, Convicts and Captains
"Full STEAM Ahead was a very worthwhile incursion that engaged all our Grade 2 students. It complemented our unit on Forces very well and provided students with the opportunity to explore various forces in a simple but effective way. Dan was very friendly and accommodating and had a lovely manner with the students. In the words of one of my students after the session, "That was epic"."

"Thoroughly enjoyed the incursion. The students were very motivated and responded well to the presenter. Thank you for sharing your great ideas with our students and teachers."
Robyn, Noble Park Primary School, Market Manoeuvres
"We just had the 'Convicts and Captains' Incursion. It was hands on, interactive and it was a big hit with our 3/4 students. The students just loved being able to dress up, not just a small select group of students but all of the large group and all while learning about Australia's history. Dan and Claire were even able to accommodate 8 grades worth of students with the dates that we requested, so no task was too great! The resources will certainly come in very handy and we really like how they have everything linked in with the curriculum. Highly recommend!"
