DESCRIPTION OF ACTION
The Far out! project turns pupils into environmental scientists and researchers investigating their local environment. Far out! is a key project funded by the Finnish National Agency for Education that aims to develop pedagogy required by the new national curriculum by creating models for multidisciplinary, phenomenon-based learning. Local waters near schools – lakes, rivers or the sea, depending on the location – are important learning environments for the schools involved in the project. Brochures have been produced on the network involved in the work and on the “Our schools’ nearby waters” project.
