Australian children have been visiting the Snowy Scheme for generations. Our Discovery Centre and educational material offer a unique learning experience for students of all ages. 

Come and visit the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre in the heart of the Snowy Mountains and immerse your students in one of the largest hydro engineering projects in the world. 

Connect your students through our new state-of-the-art immersive theatre and link them with the past, present and future of the visionary Snowy Hydro Scheme, while taking them on a virtual flyover of the Snowy Mountains. 

The Snowy Scheme provides a unique case study to engage your students with our education program, mapping across the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and History curriculum for students in primary school to year 12. In our ‘Discovery Sessions’ an experienced education officer will guide your students through  topic areas such as water, electricity, clean renewable energy, environment, engineering, immigration, social and economic history. 

Our interpretive display area provides a dynamic learning space to explore our artifacts, photographic collection, live feeds from the National  Electricity Market and Scheme Intelligence, as well as an interactive diorama to engage students of all ages.  

Why not offer your students the ‘Knowledge Quest’? This quiz not only aligns to stage 3 syllabus, but provides a great opportunity for your students to collaborate, critically think and connect with our wonderful heritage-listed icon! 

It comes at no additional cost and takes around 20 minutes. It’s easy, fun and educational!

Our team look forward to welcoming you and your students to our centre.

The Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre is located in Cooma – just over an hour from Canberra airport.
