Through Discovering the Natural Aire we deliver our River Defenders programme. This is free to schools in the Aire Valley (Leeds, Bradford and Craven areas). The programme consists of up to three half day sessions. In your school we explore the ecology of your local river and the STEM skills that professionals are using to improve it. At a third session on the riverbank pupils search for invertebrates are used to monitor pollution and explore the work River Trusts do to improve our rivers. All sessions are linked to the Key Stage 2 Science and Geography National Curriculum.
To support schools in remaining Covid secure as they return we are exploring alternative ways to support schools. These include loans of equipment such as our stream table and a minibeast delivery service for use by school staff. Please get in touch to explorehow we can support your school's learning.
