Children's University - Australian Earth Science Education

Children’s University

The Children’s University program opens a world of learning possibilities to young minds — by fostering wellbeing and encouraging children to discover new passions, visit new places and, above all, have fun!

This is achieved by providing local Learning Destinations such as such as Scitech and the WA Museum, as well as public libraries, zoos, parks, art galleries, and other organisations.

All Children’s University learning experiences are designed to have links to university courses and take place outside of the classroom e.g. during lunchtime, after school, weekends and holidays. Through a Passport to Learning, children participate in activities of their choice and are recognised for hours of participation through formal certificates at an on-campus graduation ceremony.

Children’s University members can participate in free school holiday workshops offered by AusEarthEd (on University campuses).

Children’s University in Western Australia is delivered by Edith Cowan University and The University of Western Australia through the Children’s University Western Australia Partnership (CU WAP). To learn more about the program and opportunities to be involved, you can contact members of the CU WAP team at or
