The focus of our latest session centred around the immense variation in natural adaptations of these animals, highlighting the biodiversity on our planet and also the plight of these unique reptiles and amphibians in our changing world. We are always thrilled with the enthusiasm and prior knowledge that our sessions are met with at INSPIRE.

To me, this engagement from youngsters highlights the natural instinct humans have to connect to the natural world,  and the importance of fostering that connection in young learners so they carry it forward into their adult lives.

For a closer look at our commitment to working with the community on environment and sustainability-based programming for young learners,  here is our recently released video of Inspire visiting Brockholes produced by filmmaker Katie Garrett:
