The Participate research project has three strands.
In each strand there is a different aim and different partners working on making the project happen. The schools team includes BBC, ScienceScope, BT University of Nottingham and the University of Bath.
The Schools team is interested in how we can support primary and secondary schools across the UK to collect environmental data, create movies and posters about their findings and share their data and outcomes over the Internet.
As Participate is a research project, we are exploring what resources schools would need through this website. The website acts as a central space where schools can share information and collaborate.
For the first stage of the Schools project, we have been working with key actor schools, which have been helping us to test and develop our ideas. These schools are spread across the UK and will be carrying out environmental activities during the summer period in 2007.

The outputs from these activities will be uploaded to on the School password-protected parts of this website. Schools taking part will be able to:
If you are interested in joining Participating, click on the Join link on the home page. We will send you the details about how and when you can join.
Once Schools have joined they will be given a password. All the Schools information and pupils materials (posters, movies etc) will be protected by this password. Information created by schools is only visible to those schools that have been cleared to join in the project.
