Creative Inter-personal Skills and STEM Incursions
Be surprised by how the impermanence of PLANKS by Green Hat Workshop encourage experimentation and the celebration of catastrophe, how it allows students to demonstrate a mature approach to ‘accidents’ and mistakes; engaging a Growth Mindset in a supportive and forgiving environment.
School Incursions by Green Hat Workshop provide opportunities for students to share, negotiate, trust, co-operate, display resilience, self-control and creativity while playing and experimenting with forces and movement, iterative design, concepts of balance, counter-balance and shape, ratio, pattern, mapping and more. Workshops are available throughout Victoria and are characterised by authentic, creative activity, engaging every student at their own level of ability and through their own interests.

Family Mathematics evenings and multiple sessions over a school day enable Green Hat Workshop to provide whole school communities with a rich and creative interpersonal STEM experience.

Inspire higher order thinking
The component nature of PLANKS draw students together in shared tower building, dream-house design, cocoons, bridges and mapped representations of school, neighbourhood or city.
Emphasising physical, self-directed and concrete problem solving, rather than abstract, written and symbolic thinking, a Green Hat Workshop PLANKS Incursion will change the dynamics of your classroom or school and let you see new competencies in your students.

How does it look?
The Green Hat Workshop Team of Facilitators are open to all manner of workshops for different purposes and work hard to improvise their presentations, timing and format to the needs of the participants in front of them at each event, rather than strictly keeping to a set plan.
- PARENT MATHEMATICS EVENINGS – Whole Family open ended play
A series of workshops beginning after morning recess, then an hour and a half open play workshop in the evening with parents; sometimes with a presentation introduction or conclusive reflection that outlines the value of open ended block play in Mathematical Development.
- STEM / STEAM & INTERPERSONAL SKILLS -Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics
- HASS – Humanities and Social Studies
- Creative Celebration
Short intro and long build. Just for fun.. and education. Often at the end of the school year, at a school celebration, camp or special day.
