To celebrate British Science Week 2023, the NFU Education team continued to bring farming into the classroom through Science Farm Live: a series of live lessons presented by farming role models from across England and Wales.

Over 200,000 school children in KS1 and KS2 across the country watched live to explore the Great British countryside and meet and learn how British farmers are producing food for the planet while caring for our natural environment and innovating for the future.

The lessons are also accompanied by interactive activity packs to use before, during and after the live lessons, as well as lots of opportunities for children to interact with our expert speakers.
