The field trip experience for ShakeOut is made up of a number of components which take place from Tuesday 13 October - Thursday 15 October 2015. All the links for Field Trip components in the table below go to pages that are updated daily during the field trip. They remain on this website and can be used after the date of the live field trip.

Field Trip 1
August 2015



Classes can send an ambassador (small toy) on the field trip with the LEARNZ Field Trip teacher. Daily ambassador updates can be read by all classes.


For enrolled classes, students can log in and post their own questions on a Web Board to be answered by the field trip experts. For these two field trips from late 2015 until early 2016 Ask-an-Expert will be kept open, apart from school holidays. Once it has finally closed, the Ask-an-Expert link will go to a new page which has a selection of questions and answers from the field trip Web Board.


Students speak to put questions live to experts who are on location during the field trip. Audioconferences can also be listened to live via the Internet audiostream or from a recording.


The LEARNZ Field Trip Teacher writes a detailed diary for students to read, accompanied by 10 captioned images for each day of the field trip - including the travel day on Monday.

Experts and Careers

Students meet each expert involved in this field trip via a profile page and short video. Potential career and training paths can also be explored on these pages.

Photo Gallery

All website and field trip photos are available in one easy-to-use location, where students can browse, enlarge, read captions and select to further their interest and learning.


Short, curriculum-rich videos with questions and answers are made on each day of the field trip and uploaded in the evening for viewing the following day.

Field trip videos are great to use for further topic inquiry. Image: LEARNZ.
