What is Endeavour?

Endeavour is an exciting free series of challenges for Key Stages 2, 3, 4 and 5, linked to the English National Curriculum and open to all UK schools.

The Endeavour challenges will engage your pupils in critical thinking about topics related to plants, science and the environment.

For each challenge we’ve included everything you need to deliver an interactive, pupil-led session.

We believe that a better understanding of plants and fungi will contribute to solving some of the most pressing issues facing humanity today.

Register for Endeavour and join us on a voyage of discovery!
