High-energy and fact-packed - and accommodating up to 420 pupils in a single day!

Workshop Description

This highly engaging, informative and thought-provoking day starts with a quick and interactive  assembly illustrating just what it is that makes the Earth such a wonderful world. Classes then take part in a series of high-energy, age-appropriate, drama based workshops (with not a desk in sight) designed to explore the diverse nature of the habitats our planet supports, point up the threats posed to them by human activity - and extend thinking about the power of individual action.

Exploring: the solar system, habitats and adaptations, climate change
