Exciting, interactive and informative, the Interactive School Travel Experience is a unique and innovative educational tool. It is designed to engage children, young people and adults to raise awareness and understanding of sustainable travel modes and their benefits to our health and the environment.

The Experience is also available to book as a great activity for a fair or other public event. The Experience comprises five different interactive activities - click here for pictures and learning intentions.

As a school activity, the Experience is suited to years 5-8. It provides an interactive session to bring to life the issues around school travel, healthy eating, exercise, local environmental issues and climate change.

The Experience accommodates a class of 30 children, working in groups of six in the school hall. Each class session lasts 1.5 hours.

The Experience is staffed by an educational worker and assistant. Lesson plans clearly link each activity to the National Curriculum. Worksheets enable participants to gather their own "health" data as they use the equipment. The Experience is transported in an electric vehicle to further reinforce the sustainable transport message.
