The Need for Play

In 2013, the United Nations declared that Every Child has a right to play within Article 31 of the convention on the right of a child. That Playing is a human right that all children should have, regardless of the coal background, physical ability, cultural ethnicity and Sex. According to Play England, ‘Research shows that play has many benefits for children, families and the wider community, as well as improving health and quality of life’ [2]Moreover playing is important in childhood development and fosters creativity

Our Networked Solution

The play areas create a safe & attractive environment where children problem solve & their minds are stimulated & developed as they have fun interact with people & the environment around them.

The Need for STEAM

It is widely recognised that the practical application of STEAM in school education can enable the younger generation to respond to sustainable design challenges faced globally. According to the world renowned Kings College University a key mechanism to encourage and empower young people to continue in science education post 16, is adopting methods to increase their science capital [1]. Our programmes improve the science capital of children through increasing their science literacy, enabling children to interact with adults in science related careers, addressing attitudes to science and providing knowledge of the transferability of science into areas such as sustainability.

Our Networked Solution

Through practical learning, children gain interest & proficiency in science & math’s, develop communication skills & build the confidence required to contribute towards a sustainable society. Moreover through learning with volunteers in STEM careers, participating in extra-curricular activities and integrating science into practical playground requirements, the children are able to increase their science capital and consequently are more likely to pursue science related careers.

The Need for Skills transfer

Businesses and professionals using their skills to tackle the skills shortage and desire for skilled professionals to engage in the community in a sustainable manner.
