Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is taking part in Operation Earth 2 and we’re looking for primary schools or other organisations to help us run a series of virtual science clubs!
Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council and supported by the Association of Science and Discovery Centres, Operation Earth aims to engage children and their families with the science of climate change.
As part of Operation Earth 2, we will be running a small number of free virtual science clubs for local primary schools or other organisations who provide activities for primary age children (such as uniformed groups or youth clubs).
Each school or organisation that we partner with will take part in four sessions, each lasting around 45 minutes and taking place remotely via Zoom. We will send any physical resources needed for the session to you well in advance and all sessions would need to be scheduled before February half term 2021. The engagement must take place with children and their families outside of their formal education setting so unfortunately we are unable to run these as part of the children’s normal school day.
If you think your school or organisation would be interested in taking part in the project please get in touch with us by completing the form below.
Please note that as there are a limited number of funded places, not all applications will be successful at this point. There may, however, be further opportunities in 2021 for organisations to take part in our science clubs for a small fee.
