BoxED - Learning outside the box

Calling all secondary and college school teachers. BoxED is a unique collection of free, hands-on learning activities brought direct to your classroom door.

Co-designed by UWE Bristol subject academics and colleagues in teacher education, BoxED activities range from predicting the weather and cracking the genetic code through to the concept of human rights. And all enhance the delivery of the national curriculum from Key Stages 3 to 5.

“Our BoxED session was really relevant to the ‘issues in our oceans’ aspect of the curriculum. It was something that we’d be unable to deliver ‘in-house’ as students get access to equipment they wouldn’t usually. I’d like to make BoxED an annual addition to support our teaching.”

Teacher, Sir Bernard Lovell Academy, Bristol

Once the lid is off the box, the fun really starts. Trained student facilitators will get your pupils thinking about their classroom learning in a real-life situation, connecting with learning and research at UWE Bristol and inspiring them to imagine the possibilities of university study and potential career paths.

Planned to fit within your school/college timetable, sessions vary in length from 60-180 minutes. And to top it off, we’ll bring it all to you and it’s completely free.
