The scoop on Old Parliament House education in 2009
Old Parliament House is undergoing a major redevelopment due to open in May 2009. With a range of dynamic interactive tools, the exhibition experience at Old Parliament House will utilise cutting edge technology to engage and challenge visitors.
The redevelopment will provide new experiential learning opportunities for students. General Manager, Kate Cowie, “New education programs will encourage students to question what democracy is, where it came from and what it means to them. We are particularly excited about the interactive decision-making technology. Students will be able to engage with the process of political decision-making and see how it works first-hand.”
With a mix of hand-on activities, debates and discovery programs, students visiting Old Parliament House in 2009 will have a meaningful and memorable learning experience.
