Family Science: Top Tips for Saving the Planet! (add on session - perfect for a Kick Start More application)
If we’re serious about saving planet Earth, it’s becoming more and more obvious that individuals need to take actions in their daily lives, rather than just relying on governments and big business to do it for them. So, coming at the end of a day of workshops with pupils (and following an opportunity for children to share some of their learning with their parents/carers), this engaging workshop manages to both take a light hearted look at some of the challenges that face us and support families in identifying real changes they can make. And by the end of the afternoon, you’ll have your very own school Pledge to Protect the Planet! And, by booking one of these at the end of a day of our workshops with pupils, you'll get it all for a fraction of the usual price!
