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. The activities are designed to be embedded into the curriculum while providing opportunities for outdoor learning.
These education resources offer differentiated activities and lesson plans and are designed to make links with various subject curriculums, including geography, science, maths, English, citizenship and PSHE, as well as offering students an insight into potential careers in the Bioeconomy.

We have 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
These activities were co-created with ERVAS (East Riding Voluntary Action Service – Volunteen section) and the Green Influencer group at Leconfield that is funded by Ernest Cook Trust. The three 'how to' films show a community group trying out the activities and include an instructional voiceover from one of the group members:
How to make a compost bin from pallets
How to make a wormery from pallets
How to make a HuglKultur bed for planting
We have also created a series of short videos, designed to give an insight into different career options and pathways into the Bioeconomy:
Careers in the Bioeconomy – and introduction to the THYME Project interview series with role models from Dr Emma Peasland
Careers in the Bioeconomy – interview with an Animal Nutritionist
Careers in the Bioeconomy – interview with a Project Manager
Careers in the Bioeconomy – interview with a Device Technologist
Careers in the Bioeconomy – interview with a PhD researcher
Dr Florence Halstead - Lead researcher on resource development
Katie Parsons - Lead for the ERVAS/Leconfield project
Dr Emma Peasland - Lead researcher on careers resources
