The education unit


Every year about 40 000 students visit the education unit at the Zoo. The teaching follows the goals of the Ministry for Children, Education and Gender Equality for pupils in preschool, primary school and high school. There are also courses aimed at educators and teacher students.
Dialogue is important as is an informal learning environment. Questions and educational level of the pupils a high priority.

Motivation, responsibility and the desire to learn are the keywords.
Close encounters and hands-on activities with the animals are an important part of the teaching processes at the education unit.


However, we are well aware of the importance in presenting ourselves as a teaching environment of natural sciences by using authentic role models as an essential part of the pedagogical tools.
