Do you want to know how to make a boat? Do you think you can transport a cake from one side of the river to another? Do you want to race your boat against friends?
If the answer is yes, you should come and experience our unique learning environment at the Birchcliffe Centre where science meets creative, experiential learning in a school where children have a say and their voices are heard.
The workshop is open to students interested in our full-time schooling plan as well as our home-educator plan. Students need to be aged 10-13 by August 31st 2016. Admission is free but we do ask for a donation for lunch which will be provided by the Real Junk Food Project.
