Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre
While visiting Canberra and the Snowy Mountains region, school groups are encouraged to stop by the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre to experience the mighty Snowy Scheme like never before.
Students can discover the Scheme’s past, present and future and hear some of the stories behind the engineering and our people from our experienced staff and educators. Our learning program will ignite students' imagination and expand their knowledge about a range of curriculum including geography, STEM, history and social science subjects. With a state-of-the-art immersive theatre, our learning programs can be complemented with a range of interactive experiences, including a virtual fly-over of the Scheme.
Our huge renewable energy project, Snowy 2.0, is well underway and students can learn about the project, view a scale model tunnel boring machine, and discover Snowy Hydro’s leading role as Australia transitions to a renewable energy future.
The Snowy Hydro education program is now available online, with the launch of our brand new education portal Next Generation Education Hub. It provides easy-to-access materials designed to inspire, provide critical thinking opportunities and increase science literacy with real-life, practical activities suitable for the classroom or at home. Featuring an interactive Snowy 2.0 digital storybook, hands-on activities, classroom resources and much more, learning about the Snowy has never been more accessible.
