A variety of "Alien Nation" workshops have been developed and can be brought to your primary school. In one-hour long workshops, we can read the book and hold a Q&A session, maybe with the author! We have also developed half day and full day education workshop packages around the themes in the book to further embed the learning. Contact us to discuss you requirements.
