Education and Experiences

Since 1963 Alcoa has been part of the Australian community. From our earliest beginnings we have opened our doors, people’s eyes and students’ minds, sharing an insight into the amazing technology that transforms the red rock-like mineral bauxite into light-weight, shining aluminium.
 
Today, over 635,000 people have seen Alcoa up close through tours and school visits at our Victorian and West Australian operations - what makes them so popular? Our free tours show, in an educational, fun and exciting way, how Alcoa is working to be part of the solution to sustainability. 
 
Our discover alcoa program offers two elements: education and experiences.
 
Education: Alcoa’s education program offers great teacher and student resources and activities available here on-line.
 
Under education there are interactive, cross-curricular activities linked to specific curriculum learning areas. You can also contact us to find out how you and your class can apply these lessons and learn more through an on-site visit.
 
You can also discover more about Alcoa’s history in Australia.

Experiences: For each stage of our operations - mining and rehabilitation, refining, smelting, rolling and recycling - Alcoa’s education officers link our discovery program to curriculum objectives, environmental and community interests.
 
Our experience tours can also be tailored to suit the needs and time availability of individual visitor groups.
 
Alternatively, you can join any one of our regular tours offered. For more information on the tour experiences available chose either Western Australia or Victoria.
 
Bookings are essential so please contact us if you wish to join our regular tours or if you would like to arrange a tailor-made experience.
