Dear teachers,

When we were making programmes for schools, we wanted to adapt to the curriculum and the »learning is a game« principle as much as possible. School groups will therefore be able to attain holistic understanding of the karst world, from the formation of the karst phenomena, fauna, flora, karst caves to people's lives in the karst areas. The programmes are made with cross-curricular integration of history, the Slovenian language, geography, logic and mathematics.

PERMANENT PEDAGOGICAL PROGRAMMES will start after the opening of the exhibition, whereas prior to its opening, in January 2015, you can attend the expert guided MUSEUM IN PROGRESS, where children will have a unique opportunity to learn about the processes of designing and setting up a new permanent exhibition. You can also select the MUSEUM ON VISIT programme, where the museum educationalist carries out a workshop at your facility.

Before the visit with the class, we encourage you to visit us on your own. With a personal presentation of the programme we wish to improve both its implementation as well as understanding of such an important phenomenon that is our karst.

You are kindly invited to explore karst!
