Children's University Tasmania

Working with schools and the community to connect children and young people with learning beyond the classroom.

Children's University Tasmania rewards and celebrates engagement by children and young people in informal learning.

Children's University Tasmania collaborates with schools and the community to inspire children and young people aged 7-14, fostering their confidence and nurturing curiosity through a wide range of informal learning opportunities.

Children's University participants gain stamps in their Passports to Learning for:

  • activities at Learning Destinations (e.g. museums, art galleries, wildlife parks, libraries);
  • Children's University school holiday programs and University of Tasmania events;
  • activities that take place at school but at lunchtime, recess or after school (e.g. chess club, choir, volunteering);
  • regular activities (e.g. sporting clubs, music lessons, swimming lessons); and
  • a range of fun online learning resources and activities.

Achievements are celebrated at annual Children's University graduation ceremonies around Tasmania.

Children’s University Tasmania is a member of Children’s University Australasia.
