Conservation and Careers
Kings Park Education invites you to celebrate National Science Week in August. Join us to learn about the science of nature and exciting careers of the future in conservation and environmental research.
Students will meet Kings Park’s young science and conservation staff in Kings Park who are doing real-life research in areas such as ecology, seed science, genetics and plant conservation. Learn about their projects, how their research works and exciting careers in these fields. These unique sessions are perfect for students with an interest in STEM or STEAM subjects.
By the end of the day, students will have carried out collection, cleaning and storage of seeds, learnt about the importance of seed banking, produced a pellet that supports seed growth and survival and discovered how genetics are used in plant breeding. The day includes free time to explore Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.
Bookings are available on Tuesday 13 August or Wednesday 14 August for both primary and secondary students. Places are limited so please book Friday 9 August to avoid disappointment.
