There are several ways to do this:

2. Use the project as part of your curricular teaching (see below).
3. Loan one of our Schools Resources Boxes...they can be delivered free to your (county council) school!
4. Request a school visit by Emma Wood, People Engagement Officer at DWT.
5. Consider bringing your class down to see the birds 'for real' at a special Watch Point on Cathedral Green in May or June.

Over the last two summers, we have worked with a number of school teachers to develop a set of Education Resources Loan Boxes for teachers to use. There are three of these available to county schools, plus one for schools in Derby City. A number of schools borrowed them last spring and used them very successfully.

We have also converted some of the contents of the boxes such that they can be viewed freely online. The resource pack offers ideas for using peregrines and other nest cameras as the core of a wide range of curriculum activities, from EYFS right through to pre-GCSE classes.

All we ask in return is that teachers using our resources let us know how they got on, and give us feedback which may help to improve them in the future. (A few photos would be nice too!)
The Online Resource Pack is available as a 14Mb zipped download of 26 files from our Project's Google Drive here. If you want to see what's in the resources box, or make your own, download a contents list here.
Let us know what you think!
