It’s up to you! This will vary based on the age group and the enthusiasm of the learners. We’ve designed the competition to be flexible. The ASE resources all have suggested timings to help you plan. If you are a winner we’ll work with you to plan when you can take up your farm visit.

During our pilot project for the competition children completed the tasks in different ways. The projects can all work as whole class lessons (see the individual resources for curriculum links), as part of an extra-curricular STEM club or as part of a home learning project.
