Engagement

NRG BESS members designed and piloted the BESS ‘love your saltmarsh’ and ‘be a bee’ activities.  These fun activities highlight the benefits we get from nature and are particularly appropriate for 7-11 year olds at science festivals and events.

The BESS Directorate is writing an accompanying pack for these activities with tips on learning outcomes, national curriculum links, risk assessment and further resources. The activity materials can also be posted to BESS researchers.  Please get in touch with laura.harrison@nullyork.ac.uk.

NRG BESS members are currently collaborating with teachers on food web lessons, supporting fieldwork and ecology career profiles & videos.

If you are an NRG BESS member interested in contributing to or getting support and advice for your engagement activities please contact laura.harrison@nullyork.ac.uk.  We also welcome enquiries from teachers and educational organisations.
