Introducing The Pod - Learn, Act and Inspire

About The Pod

The Pod is a free online learning resource for teachers, community group leaders and children. It’s designed with three main aims:

  1. To inspire young people and their families to choose a more sustainable lifestyle.
  2. To promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and encourage science and engineering as a career choice.
  3. To help children understand that a low carbon, secure and affordable energy supply is vital for the future.

All of the resources are aimed at 4-14 year olds and cover the topics of energy, waste, water, transport, biodiversity and climate science.
