Seven key presentation topics related to various aspects of the Willandra Lakes Region World Heritage Area (including Lake Mungo) and Aboriginal Cultures are available for participating schools to select from, learn about and develop a presentation to deliver at the conference.

Students study their topic while learning how to teach other students using the Kids Teaching Kids model. Each presenting team presents for 60 minutes to teach and interact with their peers via workshops, presentations and hands – on projects. The students rotate through the presentations and other activities over two days.

It is important for the presentations to be authentic and relevant. Educators and students are requested to visit our Website to obtain clarity about what is required for a great presentation. *We will provide support for presenting schools. You will propose your chosen topic when completing Registration and we will confirm that your school is selected to present.
