Services and resources

We offer a range of services and resources to help support the delivery of Learning for Sustainability and Eco Schools in the school.

Earth Balloon

The Earth Balloon is a dynamic and fun teaching resource available to hire. Measuring 6.7m across, the Earth Balloon can accommodate an entire class of 30 pupils inside. You enter the globe through zippers located along either the International Date Line or the Greenwich Meridian. Teaching resources are provided with the hire of the Earth Balloon, which can transform a geography, science or global citizenship topic.

The Earth Balloon can be hired by schools outside of Worcestershire, but must be collected from and returned to County Hall, Worcester.
