Here at Amazonia, we offer educational packages suitable for all age groups from Nursery to S4+ which line up perfectly with key components of the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. For more information visit the pages for the appropriate class range.
Educational visits last for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes; consisting of a guided tour, an animal handling session, and an Amazonia Interactive session with one of our experienced educational team.
Tours and handling sessions can be tailored to specific topics and individual needs, including the rainforest, senses, classification, minibeasts, and life cycles. If your group has any additional needs, please phone Amazonia ahead of your booked visit to let us know what subjects you wish to be covered and what level of information will suit your group.
