The Inspire Nature action research project explores how museum objects and images encourage creative encounters with nature and stimulate inter-disciplinary experimentation and enquiry.

University of Cambridge  Museum (UCM) educators worked collaboratively to develop a series of training sessions and digital resources for primary schools. Through the five strands of Rocks, Trees, Water, Skies and Perspectives, the programme connects objects from across the UCM with themes from the Fitzwilliam’s ‘True to Nature’ exhibition which opened in May 2022. The project was created in early 2021 when the museums were closed due to the pandemic.

Kate Noble (Senior Research Associate of Museum Learning) and Sarah-Jane Harknett (UCM Evaluation Co-ordinator) speak more about the project here
