Years 11 to 12

Start shaping the future careers of these young adults with a series of education experiences specially tailored for upper school curriculum.

The Cold Shoulder (Homeostatic Responses to Environmental Change)

Investigate structural features, behavioural responses and physiological mechanisms that help animals maintain a relatively constant internal environment. Using the stimulus-response model, students explore the regulation of temperature, utilisation of water, production of nitrogenous waste, as well as the concentration of salts and gases.

Cost: $13.25 per student, GST exempt (Primary and Secondary Students)
Cost: 
$20.25 per student, GST exempt (Tertiary Students)

Brilliant Biodiversity

Students investigate measurements of biodiversity, different monitoring techniques, current threats and Western Australian conservation action including Perth Zoo’s involvement in recovery plans.

Cost: $13.25 per student, GST exempt (Primary and Secondary Students)
Cost: $20.25 per student, GST exempt (Tertiary Students)

Past and Present Primates

Students examine why humans are classified as ‘Primates’ and the evolutionary trends within this order. Comparative anatomy, physiology and behaviour are used to identify the similarities and differences between the Hominidae (Great Ape) family. We also explore some traits of early hominins.

Cost: $13.25 per student, GST exempt (Primary and Secondary Students)
Cost: $20.25 per student, GST exempt (Tertiary Students)

Monkey See, Monkey Do

Students discover how the principles of learning (including examples of operant conditioning and systematic desensitisation) have been applied to the care and management of Perth Zoo’s animals. Animal social structure and communication is explored through the collection and evaluation of data.

Cost: $13.25 per student, GST exempt (Primary and Secondary Students)
Cost: $20.25 per student, GST exempt (Tertiary Students)

That's Classified

Students design classification schemes in a collaborative learning experience, explore the use of classification systems and the different ways in which animals are classified.

Cost: $13.25 per student, GST exempt (Primary and Secondary Students)
Cost: $20.25 per student, GST exempt (Tertiary Students)
