The Quest for the Lost Inca Gold

We've got some exciting news. Zoo School is teaming up with Jacki Hill-Murphy, a real-life explorer. As a result we are offering a FREE, entertaining and educational adventure project for schools, with the aim of encouraging and inspiring children to go out and explore.

If you take part, you and your class will be able to follow a real life explorer in ‘The Quest for the Lost Inca Gold.’ This winter, Jacki Hill-Murphy and her team will leave on an expedition following a 500 year old treasure map through Ecuador. The team is interested in the tough trail that may lead to the treasure and not the treasure itself.

Teachers can pick and choose from a huge range of exciting activities linked to the National Curriculum, with new tasks being introduced week by week to keep classes busy this winter. What’s more, take part in fun competitions for the chance to win fantastic prizes, including a free school trip to the zoo! We will be holding a special event in Spring 2019 for schools, where there will be the chance to meet Jackie when she returns from her expedition!

Want to know more? Watch the video below to hear from Jacki herself and our Education team.
