Teacher testimonial:

Carrie Cort has run two morning workshops for Yr 3 and Yr 4 and one morning for Yr 5 and Yr 6, the workshop themes were ‘Dreaming of a Healthy Planet’, ‘The Future We Want’ and ‘Green Inventors’. Through a combination of engaging hands on activities, informative PowerPoints and videos, children have been introduced to Green issues that affect them. The workshops have really made the children reflect on the impact modern life has on the environment and the need to change behaviour to protect their future. They produced work, including a letter to their M.P., which gave them a chance to voice their concerns.

Mrs Constable – Teacher of Yr 3 and Yr 4

Quotes from children attending the workshops:

“I learnt about an inventor who at 17 came up with the idea of an incredible ship which sucks plastic out of the sea, by 22 his idea was out there helping clear up the sea plastic. That really inspired me”

South American Tree Frog“I now know that people are making incredible new things out of rubbish, actually I now call it waste resources”.

“I did not realise that humans are using so many resources and that there is a limited supply, now I really understand why we must use less and recycle”.

“I loved inventing a wind powered car out of a Pringle tube, 4 CDs, 2 sticks, 1 straw and a balloon”.
