The Learning Guide was designed to accompany visitors as they take a journey of environmental and artistic discovery through the Foundation’s Travelling Exhibition. The Learning Guides serve the purpose of stimulating inquisitiveness and questioning, while supporting individuals to gain an appreciation of art within science and science within art. In response to teachers supporting students to take the Bondar Challenge, they have been used to inform in art interpretation and quizzes that support the science learning in environmental curriculum. Providing points of interest for all generations, across ecozones and biomes, materials presented in the guides lead people to being curious about some structure or phenomenon related to the natural environment or an element of artistic merit. The materials presented have become enduring documents useful for intergenerational learning.
