    FAQ Biodiv'Educ

    At present, Biodiv’Educ offers 10 different workshops:

    • Escape Game on ancient forests
    • Follow the animals in Minecraft
    • The quest for the lost treasure
    • Create your ecosystem
    • Biodiv’TV
    • Naturacraft
    • Environmental Code
    • A robot on the road to the animals
    • The super-senses of animals
    • Escape game on wetlands

    We come directly to the schools (in the classroom or room at our disposal) when the workshops are indoors and we choose a place with you when they are outdoors. For the lost treasure workshop, we have several choices of places to do this activity but we can also do it in the immediate vicinity of the school by going to locate the land.

    At the time of our animations, we miss only the place where to carry out it. We come with all the necessary material (educational material, computers, tablets …) to realize the animation. Depending on the workshop we may just need access to electricity and tables and chairs.

    After having discussed with you, we will give you an estimate and send you a document on the themes of the workshops chosen to prepare our visit. After the animation we send you a poster summarizing the knowledge acquired by the children.

    The animators of Biodiv’Educ are Romane FORRESTIER and Cécile SABA, holder of a professional license in management of natural spaces and leisure and agri-environmental engineer, passionate about nature. They were joined by Tom BELIER BARDELLI at the end of 2022 who is an apprentice in his professional license.

    You can book your animations whenever you want. The time of year with the most activities is May and June, but we always try to find dates for classes that want them.

    It is not necessary to prepare the workshops in advance. Nevertheless, for the teachers who wish it, we provide before the animation a document written by our care which resumes the main themes which are approached in the workshops.
    For the Environmental Code workshop, we propose a quiz that can be prepared before our visit in order to get closer to the Highway Code, which requires practice before taking the final exam.
