Schools please note: This workshop is for secondary school students in Years 8, 9, and 10.

Expanding on the Eel Trap project from DISPOSABLE, Science Gallery Melbourne is delivering cross-curriculum workshops with artist Mitch Mahoney to introduce high school students to Indigenous innovations. Created and led by young Indigenous people, students attending this workshop will consider Indigenous perspectives, with a particular focus on sustainable land management, to inspire them to create their own innovations which reflect Aboriginal ways of seeing and interacting with Country that tackle modern environmental challenges.

To book your students into this workshop, and for more information, please contact our program manager Jen Zielinska:

Please note the workshop is limited to 30 students at a time.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
