EDUCATION

Here at the Woodworks Museum and Interpretive Centre, the importance of positively communicating the forestry and wood industries is emphasised in a hands on, interactive way.

Interactive learning is fun and helps students remember the experience easier than just listening to someone talk about it. Children learn by doing. Instead of simply listening to a teacher or instructor talk about the subject, students have the opportunity to engage with the wood and tools in a safe but informative way.

Learning about our forests as a natural renwable resource if managed appropriately, is an important part of education for the next generation, so they can take an active role in the care of the land.

The Danish Wood Initiative

Here is an interesting video produced by the Danish Wood Initiative that shows in a pretty unique way how wood is the world’s most environmentally friendly raw material, how wood harvesting is all part of the forestry cycle and how using wood is advantageous to the environment.

Schools Tree Day

Each year in July, around 2500 schools across Australia take part in Schools Tree Day. Students nation-wide have learnt how to plant, and care for the seedlings they grow. Become involved.

Primary School

Teaching our children about Forests and the impact they have on our planet and community is one of the main goals of the Museum. Here are some links to wonderful teaching resources for all our kids, most of which have come from the excellent website of Forest Learning.
