Snowy Hydro Education Program
Snowy Hydro has been running educational programs for schools visiting the Snowy Mountains Scheme for over a decade. Our programs offer a unique learning experience for students from Primary School to Year 12.
A range of education classroom resources has been produced specifically for schools, each providing an appropriate case study for a range of syllabuses. As well as these classroom resources, the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre situated in Cooma (just over an hour from Canberra) has a range of activities tailored to fit your programs. The Centre focuses on the Schemes power stations, dams, water resources and energy market but it also includes displays on key topics such as water, environment, engineering and history. Exhibits ranging from pedal-power bikes, live information on the National an interactive energy market and interactive hands-on models reinforce a dynamic learning experience for students of all ages. The Centre delivers tailored presentations to students about the Scheme which cover the environment, cloud seeding, renewable energy, National Electricity Market and water.
