Think STEM doesn’t apply outside the classroom? Think again. At Werribee Open Range Zoo we use STEM skills every day to care for and protect wildlife. Join us as we show you the variety of ways STEM helps us in our daily work and gain a unique insight into career opportunities at the zoo.

Register your students and join us live using Adobe Connect on a computer (hooked up to a screen or interactive whiteboard) or electronic device. You will watch a live video stream and will need sound to hear the conversation. Students will be able to type questions via a live chat box - no camera or microphone is required.
