Being closer to nature makes you happier according to new research, but one in six kids have not seen a single bug in six months! We want to help local children reconnect with nature through the tour!
All 13 intu centres will be connecting with local schools over their period of the tour. Educational packs and presentations will be provided to engage children with nature and insects in their local environment. Children can learn about the habitat and anatomy of insects and open their eyes to how these bugs live. If your arty schoolkids are up for it, challenge them to have a go at desigining their very own bug. Entries will be put on display at their local intu centre and the best designs will be created for real by our master model makers. To get involved please contact your local intu centre.
