Make your next student activity something extraordinary with incursion activities for leadership, learning, team building and enrolment screening.
Hands-on learning school incursions
When providing student activities, balancing student engagement, learning outcomes and logistics is an art form. If you’re looking for an amazing, affordable, but easy-to-organise school incursion, our experiences are crafted for you.
Based on the premise that you can ‘learn anything when it’s fun’, we have designed challenging, tangible and fun puzzle scenarios that tap into the curriculum elements of science, technology, english, arts and maths.
A fun team challenge where nimble minds will win the day. Teams go head-to-head in a race for the most points gained by solving puzzles of varying difficulty on a customised tablet app.
The ultimate team strategy challenge. Teams must firstly earn as much currency as they can through puzzle solving before strategically spending it on items to craft their ultimate water carrying contraption.
A super fun game built for students to play at their own pace. Individuals or teams need to locate and complete as many challenges as possible to win points. Finding the puzzles is half the fun!
Technology built just for you
We’ve designed and built an app from the ground up specifically to facilitate our experiences. We have done this with your students in mind to give them the most fun and compelling school incursion. Every aspect of the app can be customised to your school and your needs. We even bring the devices. Ask us for a demo!
“Puzzle Masters presents learning in the guise of fun and competition. Anything that has 15 year old boys racing around trying to problem solve is a thoroughly worthwhile experience in my opinion.”Ros PetersAmbrose Treacy College | Information Services Coordinator
“I would definitely recommend this experience to other schools. Directors of the Extraordinary were very efficient, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Their resources were highly effective, extremely well presented and professional.”Dianne GoggiBrisbane State School | Head of Transitions
“I would recommend this experience without hesitation, everyone got really involved and the two hours went by really quickly. I really think that the group enjoyed working with people that they don't normally get to work with.”Kym NissanSt Peters College | Deputy Head of Junior School
Witness your students having a blast
We believe you can learn anything if you make it fun! We deliver hands-on experiences that deeply engage students from start to finish while meeting curriculum objectives. Through use of gamification, we immerse students into a narrative where they must work in teams to creatively solve puzzle-based problems.
It works. Well.
What we do works because it is different.
In line with current research, we know that fun, game-based play is highly effective in learning. In the complex and changing circumstances that our programs provide, students have the opportunity to develop Australian Curriculum capabilities, together with:
- Curriculum learning areas of maths, english, arts, science and general knowledge
- Team work and leadership
- Critical thinking and creative problem solving
- Interpersonal skills and personal resilience
