Education partner, Whizz Education, is teaming up with PiXL (Partners in
Excellence) to deliver a suite of free summer learning activities across disciplines that will
focus on the topic of climate change and ‘Building for the Future.’ Activities will be based
on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 7, 9, 11 and 13. They will encourage
children to learn about the environments in which they live and to support the development of
a sustainable world with a focus on STEM activities during the Summer Term and Summer
Fiona Goddard, Education Consultant at Whizz Education explains: “We know that Maths
education is essential in developing an understanding of climate change. Without numbers,
pupils would not understand ideals like the carbon budget or the limit of 1.5 degrees of
warming at the centre of climate change debates. This learning could help pupils to deploy
their maths in innovative, world-changing ways.
“We are now inviting schools to join in with our Building for the Future summer activities.
Pupils could be measuring rainfall while elevating maths skills by collecting and recording how
many millimetres of liquid is captured and discussing how to make the records useful, fair
and impactful in the future. Getting involved with Whizz Education’s collaborative summer
project with PiXL might provide other inspirations for local interests too!
“As well as teaching students to handle numbers, the summer project has the capacity to
inspire, engage and empower. Numerous studies have shown that climate change education
has the biggest impact when students are encouraged to take responsibility for learning about
issues that impact them and their communities. Join us and help make a difference!”
