Children’s University Australasia and Africa (IO) is hosted and administered by the University of Adelaide on its North Terrace Campus and is a not-for-profit, charitable arm of the University.
Children’s University offers unique learning experiences for children outside of the school environment and recognises achievements through the award of formal certificates. The model leverage’s local educational activity providers and has a strong emphasis on experience as a significant learning tool, acknowledging the value of the range of learning experiences and environments in which children engage.
Children’s University provides 7 to 14-year-olds (and 5 and 6-year-olds with their families and carers) with high-quality learning outside the normal school day. Learning destinations are places and organisations to which students can travel with their Children’s University passport to learning, a booklet similar to a real passport! CU at the Zoo focuses on animal behaviour, an important concept in scientific knowledge and practice. Students will build personal and social capabilities concerning conservation issues and positive actions that can be taken to save species from extinction.
