An EU project with outdoor education at heart
We are a network of 8 organisations that want to make learning outside the classroom a tangible reality.
We believe that by making science fun, students will be more conscious about our planet’s sustainability while gaining cognitive, affective, social and behavioural skills.
Education Outside the Classroom, the OTTER way
Learning outside of the classroom improves STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) learning and awareness of today’s environmental issues.
What makes OTTER special
Education Outside the Classroom
A teaching method that improves students’ happiness, memory, behaviour and social skills.
We should be aware of how our choices have an impact on the environment.
We are sophisticated consumers when we know what we are buying and not base our decisions only on the price.
We are scientific citizens when we have enough knowledge to make informed decisions.
