We recognise that children have the right to participate in shaping the environment around them. Through the power of collaboration, empathy and technology we take children on an adventure to design their play areas themselves.

We will run a series of STEM-based co-design workshops with your students, typically aged 7-11, where they will design their play areas. We will then develop their designs so that they can be sustainably built.

For early years play areas, we work with the teachers and children to understand their play needs and propose play area designs.

We take care to provide you with the best resources for the programme to run. We will train your teachers or provide business role models to facilitate the workshops.

Schools either fund the play area or we work with a local business to sponsor all or some of the play area.

Children are empowered to design their own play space through participating in STEM-based co-design workshops. The children learn about sustainable use of resources, engineering, and design principles

I love the love plays engineering club because I learn how to be an engineer using sustainable methods
Greenfield E-Act Primary school child, aged 9

Love Plays really engaged children in our school, who ordinarily have a low career expectation.  This engaging workshop allowed the children to be part of a process helping children in another country.  Many children have not left the city they were born in so this was a fantastic opportunity for them to embrace their global citizenship.  What was even more amazing is that the children were able to pitch their ideas (for many this was daunting) to engineers and then see their plans be built.  This workshop allows children whatever their ability to engage in the practical nature of many of the subjects they are taught and really allow them to work out of their comfort zone.  I would highly recommend this project.
