STEM activities outdoors to engage children
This one day course has a clear focus on extending forest school and outdoor adventure activities through the promotion of S.T.E.M. experiences in your school. Using the best resources nature offers, this course engages learners in irresistible activities that embed key literacy and numeracy skills through stage-appropriate sessions.
The simple and effective methodologies that underpin this approach will provide you with a firm foundation on which to build up your S.T.E.M. practice and further develop your confidence when working outside. Throughout the day, we draw on the unique learning and value that the outdoors can provide.
Join us and add further challenge and progression to your school’s programmes for Forest Schools, Physical Literacy, Nurture and Engagement.

•Explore the potential of the outdoor environment to develop S.T.E.M. skills
