We take a look back at the work of the NFU's Education team over the past two years in their drive to reconnect children with rural life, develop their understanding of farming and increase their awarenss of the field-to-fork journey.
Last week, the NFU Education team delivered some exciting teacher CPD workshops at the Association for Science Education conference in Birmingham to promote Farming STEMterprise: their brand new range of engaging, cross-curricular STEM projects.

We joined a group of disadvantaged children on their residential visit to The Farm Project- a working organic farm that provides experiences for children and young people. Read about the transformative impact that this week had on everyone involved.
This month, we are learning about chemical changes and have designed two simple, spooky and seasonal learning activities (linked to the National Curriculum) that could be completed at home or in the classroom to help children understand this concept.
The NFU has officially launched its new primary school competition, Farmvention, with a festival of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learning, attended by NFU President Minette Batters and children from local schools.
