We want to educate children, and also to show that science can be a fun and attractive career. To support this we run various activities in the UK which aim to promote science to children and university students.
We are particularly proud to be linked with other national educational groups, including Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF), Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) and the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Network (STEMNET)
In 2011, we interacted with over 11,000 children through various educational outreach programs including school visits, science tours, farm tours and careers fairs.
We have also focussed our efforts on creating our 'Learning Zone' where students can interactively learn about science and the environment. Last year our interactive periodic table alone received more than 12,500 visitors.
For the past six years we have also contributed to the Times 100, a business studies resource for GCSE, A Level and university students. Our first case study received over one million downloads. This forms part of our focus on inspiring children to continue on a scientific path and gives them an insight into science and technology in industry.
At Jealott’s Hill we encourage schools to visit the site to learn about crops and science, and are always happy to help with science lessons in local schools. Find out more at our 'Your place or Ours?' page.
