Half Day Environmental Workshops

Our workshops are designed to be delivered in your school for £175 per session over two and half hours. They are a great way to promote thought in school about environmental issues. All topics link to Eco-School Awards and we can also write bespoke programmes if a topic is not already covered.

Shocking the Earth - KS2

Children know we use electricity everyday and that it is a major part of our lives, but do they know where it comes from and what effect it is having on our planet?

In this interactive workshop pupils will explore the concept of global warming and how our electricity use is contributing to climate change. They will also find out how they can take some simple actions to help slow climate change and spread the word about the positive changes we can all make.
