Connecting with Schools
 
Alcoa recognises the importance of education and the next generation, and connects with schools in a variety of ways across our communities.

Our Connecting with Schools education program reflects our ongoing commitment to the future. It encompasses a range of initiatives which expose children to quality learning opportunities.

Key components include:

  • ‘discover alcoa’
    The discover alcoa program aligns education resources about Alcoa’s operations to key curriculum learning areas, including Science, Society and Environment, English and Maths.  There is also an ‘experiences’ component of the program, whereby students, teachers and other community members can visit one of Alcoa’s locations for a guided tour.

  • Frog Watch - Partnership with Museum of Western Australia
    Alcoa and the Western Australian Museum developed an educational resource that teaches children about frogs and their precious ecosystems. Click 'here' for more information


  • Alcoa Schools Education Program (Sculpture by the Sea)
    Our partnership with WA’s most prominent annual art exhibition assists artists who choose to sculpt with aluminium, and connects school children with art. The three week Alcoa Schools Education Program sees more than 1400 school children attend sculpture workshops with some of the exhibition’s artists. The program gives children from our regional communities, and the metro area, a chance to express themselves through art (and learn about aluminium!).
