LIVE STREAM SAFARI SCHOOL
In Your Classroom
Live Stream Begins September 2020!
This is more than just a 'virtual zoo tour'. With Live Stream Safari School we broadcast our amazing safari education sessions LIVE to your classroom! Our aim: to help those pupils and schools unable to physically visit the Safari to continue to learn and engage with nature and wildlife, benefiting wellbeing.
We've developed Live Stream Safari School, a real-time, interactive experience, with special access, where pupils and teachers can experience and learn at the Safari – online.
- Live Broadcast
- Multi-location technology
- Question and Answer sections
- See animals up close
- A range of topics
Topics for the Safari School sessions could include African Animals, Classifications or Food and Feeding, from which schools can pick and choose according to their interests or curriculum needs.
The stream is interactive, with pupils able to ask live questions during the sessions and receive an instant response from the animal experts on site, just as if they were there in person.
We'll also use exciting, behind the scenes, pre-recorded film in the broadcast that can’t always be captured live, such as veterinary procedures and new arrivals.
Several schools can participate in each Live Stream Safari School meaning Knowsley Safari can open up its Learning and Discovery sessions to schools outside of its usual catchment area. In fact, location is limitless and there are plans for the Live Stream Safari School to expand its reach internationally.
Live Stream Safari School will be available to children’s clubs and groups throughout the summer holidays and launches for schools in September.
