The 2016 season is nearly upon the Paultons Park Education Team and there is more than ever to look forward to this year when booking a school trip!
From unique learning days to reward trips, Paultons Park offers a great day out for school visits to the New Forest.
Meet the Mini-beasts
For the first time ever, the Lab will be full of interesting invertebrates all ready to meet and greet our visiting school guests. Madagascan hissing cockroaches, millipedes and exotic stick insects will be just some of the mini-beasts children will be able to get up close and personal to in this workshop. The 45 minute session uses these fascinating creatures to explore habitats and adaption – all matched to the new National Curriculum. >Find out more
New for 2016 at Paultons Park is our Rollercoaster Physics session. Using a ready-built K’Nex coaster, children will explore and investigate the physics behind how a rollercoaster works.
A must for any classes looking at forces or rollercoaster design! >Find out more
‘Science in the Park’ – 11th March 2016
In association with British Science Week, the Education Team at Paultons Park are celebrating science in this one-off “all-things-science event” specifically aimed at Primary Schools. It will be a fascinating day full of free (pre-booked) workshops, animal talks, feeds and activity trails. We are excited to welcome University of Southampton for the day who will be brining their mobile planetarium which will give children a fascinating and interactive tour of the moon and planes in our solar system.
This is definitely one of the most eagerly awaited days on the calendar for the Education Team this year. >Find out more
Opening on May 17th, our new and exciting dinosaur themed attraction is a highlight of the up-coming season. With 8 rides and experiences including 2 new family rollercoasters, Lost Kingdom is a must for schools studying dinosaurs or part of a school reward trip. The life-like dinosaurs that appear in Lost Kingdom will make you feel as if you have stepped back in time!
