Inspiring Educator Award 2015

STC Research Foundation were delighted to be awarded the Inspiring Educator Award at the Bayer CropScience and FACE Awards ceremony last Friday.

The award was for the “Discovering Science on the Farm” project which was undertaken with Mark Thompson (Video Edge), Mr Robert Rook, Mr Paul Temple and Gillshill Primary School.

The project reconnected primary school children with food production in a changing climate and culture.  Elements of the project included farm visits, web based virtual learning experiences and exciting classroom learning.  The project was aimed not just at the children but also at the learning providers, to enable both academic benefit and to improve knowledge of how farming  and the environment work hand in hand together.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Nineveh Trust who have generously funded this project.

Here are Mr Rook and Mr Ward with the award
