The THYME Project is a collaborative initiative between the universities of Teesside, Hull and York to develop the regional Bioeconomy.
As part of the THYME Project, we have worked with school teachers to develop activities and lesson plans around Bioeconomy themes and concepts, including sustainability and the transition from fossil fuels to renewable resources as part of a zero carbon future, that may be embedded into the curriculum while providing opportunities for outdoor learning.
Thyme Education Resources
We are currently finalising education packs for KS3 and KS4 and hope to add further differentiated materials for KS1&2 in the near future. These packs contain a number of linked activities that are also suitable for use by community groups with an interest in environmental issues. Check back soon for updates.
We have also created two short animated films designed to explain concepts around the Bioeconomy, as well as wider issues around sustainability and the circular economy.
The first is aimed at older students from KS4 to adult: watch it here
The second is a stop-motion animation, featuring voiceover by one of our EEI Green Influencers. This is aimed at KS2 upwards: watch it here
