More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider
Camp Kernow engages with children in schools across Cornwall and beyond, inspiring and educating the next generation about sustainability and reconnecting them with the natural world through hands-on experiences in the classroom, in the woods and at our off-grid centre.
The Future Roots outreach programme brings sustainability education to life in schools with hands-on workshops, enabling children to learn more about renewable energy and the environment in a fun and engaging way. Workshops are curriculum linked and enable children to experiment with and test technologies including wind, hydro, solar and wave energy.
A typical full day’s outreach incorporates four sessions lasting 60-75 minutes each. You can choose two topics in one day for example two sessions on solar and two on wind, or have one themed day across year groups. Each session is suitable for up to 30 children.
Workshops are conducted inside a large ‘Planet Earth’ structure which can be erected in your school hall or other large indoor space.

“Each workshop was exciting, stimulating and well matched to the age of children in each group. The children were totally engrossed in their activities and were able to tell the teacher about the benefits of sustainable energy, from the youngest to the oldest. The discussion with the school council members was particularly helpful as it enabled them to have a more focused approach to our ‘Eco-Schools’ work.”
— Julie Simpson, Headteacher, Antony School
