Castle Schools - STEM based activities and lessons based around Elizabeth Castle.

Castle School is an experiment based learning opporutinity based on STEM subjects, we've created a series of experiments and learning resources based on building castles, life in the castle and some exploding cannons for  KS2 schools.  Castle Schools is sponsored by Ogier and the One Foundation as is part of the Love Your Castle Campaign.

From December 2017 schools will be able to have a free experiments box  full of live experiements to do safely in the classroom.  That's not all, as  we can come to your classroom with the experiments, lesson plans and scientific explanations. -  We just won’t be able to lend you fire a cannon or have an actual 17th Century engineer to demonstrate how to make gunpowder!
