Bamboo Diversity Jungle Gym
Play-based learning using one of the most versatile plants in the world
This project was about doing something a bit different from the usual citizen science workshops.
TTT designed a playground and workshop around the premise of: what if you were allowed to climb on and play with the bamboo scaffolding that you see everywhere, how would that make you feel about bamboo, and nature?
Students aged 5-13 joined a 3-D climbing scavenger hunt, den building using bamboo poles and fresh bamboo cut onsite, and
model-making using bamboo skewers.
With thanks to the new Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) Subvention for Biodiversity Education grant, and Playright Children's Play Association for technical input.
