Help us give every school in the UK a copy of Mission:Explore Food Taster

January 26, 2012

We’ll create a  printable version of Mission:Explore Food and send it to every school in the UK for free if we hit our crowd funding target by the end of February.

Mission:Explore Food Taster will be bigger than our other books, include over 150 missions (including recipes) and be available in a printable PDF that can be freely copied and printed  in schools. The Taster book will be a lite version of the main book but still include chapters on growing, harvesting, cooking and eating food as well as waste and soil.

If we fail to meet our crowd funding target then everyone will get their money back. If our target is met we will contact over 25,000 UK schools offering them the free lite version of the book and make it available through selected teaching resource websites.

Help us to bring this awesome resource to schools and you can claim some great rewards for yourself too.

For more details and to pledge your support, please click here. As little as £1 can help.. yes, just £1!

Please help us to spread the word so that we can help to make this happen.

 

Society of Authors and ALCS on announcing Mission:Explore as a runner up for the Educational Writer of the Year 2011..

“Mission Explore by the Geography Collective and published by Can of Worms Press was ‘mischievous, quirky and fun. full of truly challenging, thought provoking and slightly bonkers activities. Nicola Davies particularly liked the ‘Mint Stint’ which asks readers to see how far they can cycle sucking the same mint, giving page space for the route maps of three attempts.’ But the judges admired the book as being a lot more than frivolous entertainment ,  liking the way it fosters an attitude of observation , enquiry and engagement with the world,, asking children to interact with their environment, interact question it and think about it – and to play with ideas, places, objects  – a playful approach that is the foundation of all creativity.”
