Secondary outreach

Our education sessions are tailored to your students’ age and ability and run by the Community Education Team (qualified teachers with full DSB checks). Our interactive sessions cover many areas of the curriculum, particularly science, geography, and PSHE, and are suitable for Key Stage 3 to adult.

Go with the flow

A creative way to learn, challenging teams to work together and plan strategically. The aim is to build a water recycling network and send sewage from the bath, toilet and sink to the water recycling works. Answer the questions to earn pipes and watch out for blockages caused by other teams. Can you block their network or will they stop you?

The Lego challenge


Teams work together and problem solve to learn about the challenges of engineering. Students split into groups and construct a section of the build, and then come together to complete the overall structure. Can they follow detailed instructions and work as a team?


Liquid Assets


Your class becomes board of directors to create a plan for the company’s future. They must consider five different business areas: finance, operations, enhancement and resilience of services, customer care and the environment. Can they create a plan for the future of our region, ensuring the environment, agriculture and customers have enough water?


The water supply challenge 


Students design, build and test a water supply network, simulating a real life engineering project. The aim is to complete a fully functioning water network to ‘supply’ customers with water at a satisfactory flow from tower to tap. At the end of the exercise, real water must flow to all Anglian Water customers.
