LENScience Face to Face Bookings

LENScience Face to Face programmes are very popular with schools - we usually have more than three times as many requests as places.

For this reason we strongly advise schools to make use of our advance booking system and make a booking request in Term 4 for the following year.

Group Sizes:

  • Groups will be combined to maximise available booking dates.
  • If you have 120 students in five classes we would ask you to combine classes to create a four day visit.
  • If you have fewer than 20-25 students you may be combined with another school to create a total group of 25-30 students.

Booking Process LENScience Face to Face Programmes 2012

Booking requests for school visits will be accepted from Tuesday, 25 October - Tuesday, 15 November 2011.

Schools will be informed of possible dates for 2012 visits late October 2011.

We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but please remember we have limited places.

  3. Submit only one request per school.  Please consult all teachers and administration staff before submitting your request.  
  4. During Term 2 and 3 we can have up to 20 requests for classes in some weeks. 
    This is why we request that you provide a range of possible dates for your visit.

  1. Schools will be sent an offer of dates for 2012 by Friday, 2 December 2011.  Once you receive your offer it is important that you respond to confirm your place as soon as possible. Schools that do not respond within a week of the offer being made may lose their booking. 
  2. If there is a problem with the dates that are offered, please contact lenscience@auckland.ac.nz as soon as possible.
    We will do our best to negotiate a swap with another school.
  3. Complete the booking confirmation form that you are sent and return by email to lenscience@auckland.ac.nz.

What happens if we don't get a booking?  

Schools that miss out on bookings are placed on a waiting list.

We will contact you to offer you a place if we get a cancellation that matches with your request dates.
