Take on the Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge!

Learn how you and your school can help save the rainforests with our fantastic, free online programme for primary and secondary schools across the UK and Ireland (pupils aged 8-14).

Choose from 3 fascinating challenge topics: the Food We Eat, Stuff We Buy and Energy We Use and then carry out simple tasks to help your school learn about the rainforest and how to protect the environment.

With brilliant curriculum-based resources, students learn about the rainforest across a range of subject areas including geography, citizenship, science, numeracy and PSHE building valuable life skills including creativity, communication and teamwork.

There are great prizes on offer including the opportunity to win £1,000 (€1,250) for your school and make a short film about the rainforest.
