Taking Science Outside


CEP is working with Feral Science Limited to offer curriculum science lesson delivery or enhancement sessions. Feral Science teaches science outdoors using bush craft skills and other outdoor skills in a woodland environment, directly linking them to science curriculum outcomes.


Feral Science is able to deliver through one-off sessions or as part of an ongoing program and can target age group appropriate learning from Upper Key Stage 2 up to GCSE in your schools own outdoor space or at CEP Holly Hayes, our woodland site.


Most curriculum criteria can be covered, demonstrated, practiced and evidence through exploring scientific principles behind familiar bush craft activities or through interaction with the natural world. The Feral Science approach is suitable for both teaching the topic, backing up and applying the topic knowledge that has been previously covered in class in real-world practical applications.


Topics covered include:


  • Water Filtration and Sterilisation (Potable water)

  • Combustion

  • Thermal Transfer

  • Energy Stores & Energy Transfer

  • Forces

  • Fire by Friction

  • Pressure

  • Density

  • Variation

  • Classification and Evolution

  • Magnetism and Navigation


And many more!
