The Cornfield Project aims to transform a piece of unused urban land into woodland, wildflower areas, environmental project trails, bird / bat boxes, nature zones and outdoor teaching facilities.
With the support of academic staff within the School and the Causeway Coast & Glens Council Biodiversity Officer, Ulster University students will work with teachers from several local primary schools to develop teaching resources on Biodiversity and Ecology. Academic staff and participating students will lead groups of pupils from local Primary Schools on field-trips to the Cornfield Project site, assisting with completing the workbooks and producing a display in a follow-up session back at their schools.

Students will also complete a Cornfield Project Reflective Learning Log book outlining:
30 hours to include:
Development of targeted teaching resources related to biodiversity topics
