Book Now

Explore the outdoor classroom with a creative ‘Bug Hotels’ workshop connecting Science and Art, inspiring children to look after their local environment. Students engage in role play and educational games on biodiversity, food chains and food webs; participants take part in an interactive quiz, and create a bug hotel from recycled materials for use at school or at home.

The workshop is can be differentiated to suit either KS1 or KS2 to provide scientific experiences for children to explore the world around them, to raise their own questions and to develop scientific ideas. The workshop will also inspire further questioning and investigation by students into social and environmental issues.
