This multi-site learning program provides opportunities for students in years 4-7 to connect with the Australian Curriculum: Science and the Visual Arts.

In a guided session students explore the science of art in the permanent collection, SALA displays and the Ramsay Art Prize exhibits. Venture next door to the South Australian Museum to delve deeper into the National Science Week theme ‘Future Earth’ with a visit to the Biodiversity Gallery and learn how scientists are working to preserve endangered species. This will be followed by a visit to Artlab to discover how Egyptians used a form of chemistry in the process of mummification and how modern technology reveals what is inside a mummy.
