Learning at M.A.D.E
M.A.D.E explores culture, history, civics and citizenship. Using technology to engage students on many levels, M.A.D.E offers a wide selection of
age-appropriate programs to suit your educational needs.
M.A.D.E offers specialised school tours for each year level from Foundation to Year 12. The tours, developed by M.A.D.E’s qualified teaching staff, align with the Australian curriculum. Each tour offers a guided viewing of the iconic Eureka Flag, experience with M.A.D.E’s digital touchscreens plus a number of other hands-on, engaging activities. Education officers are on hand throughout school tours to answer questions and assist students with the exhibition’s thought provoking content. Special effort is made to incorporate elements of literacy and student inquiry into the tours as well.
Bookings for school tours can be made using our convenient online form. Alternately, a call to 1800 287 113 will put you in contact with one of M.A.D.E’s Education Officers, who can discuss the specifics of your visit. On occasion M.A.D.E is able to customise the length of tours to better fit with school travel timetables. M.A.D.E’s Education Officers can also suggest a range of additional activities in and around town that will help to complete your group’s visit to Ballarat.
To compliment its onsite programs, M.A.D.E has developed a number of education resources. Created for convenient classroom use, the resources link with areas of the Australian Curriculum for History, Civics and Citizenship and English.
Throughout 2015, M.A.D.E looks forward to the release of some of its more comprehensive resource packages. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘subscribe’ in the subject line to join our mailing list and receive updates regarding these materials.
