Bookings for Home Schoolers

To make your visit at Sci-Enza for your homeschooling group a valuable learning experience we would like to draw your attention to the following:

  1. Bookings & Fees
    It is essential to book in advance - a confirmation of the booking will be faxed to you.
    A fee is payable on arrival at the centre (see below).
  2. Preparation
    Learners will benefit from their outing to Sci-Enza if they have been briefed on the purpose of the visit.
  3. Group size
    In order to present a science show at an age appropriate level all learners should fall with in the same age group.
    Age groups: 5-10 year old, 11-14 year old or 15-18 year old.
    Please book separate visits for learners in different age groups. The maximum group size is 100 learners. We accept visitors from 5 years and older. Parents with younger children or babies can make use of other facilities on campus such as the Botanical gardens, Coffee Buzz or the Mapungubwe museum.
  4. Supervision
    Home schooling groups should have at least one supervising educator per 30 learners (Free entry for 1 educator/parent per 30 learners, additional educators/parents must pay entrance fee). Supervisors must be present during the whole visit. Due to access control measures on campus neither learners nor supervisors may leave the campus during the visit.
  5. Discipline
    Supervisors are responsible for keeping discipline among the learners. If discipline is not maintained, the group will be asked to leave. The fees will be forfeited.
  6. Punctuality
    Please be on time. If you are late, we have the right to change the programme or even cancel your visit as the facilities are used for other functions as well.
  7. Food and Drink
    Eating, drinking and smoking are not allowed in the auditorium or in the exhibition space of Sci-Enza. There are a number of cafeterias on campus where the learners can buy refreshments. Large groups may make arrangements with these cafeterias. Contact us for details.
  8. Drunkenness
    Learners or supervisors under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not welcome at Sci-Enza.
  9. Hangers-on
    Persons that are not part of the group should book for their own visit.
  10. Damage
    The cost of repairing any malicious damage to any exhibit will be recovered from your educational institution.
