Welcome to NFU Education

As a small team of former teachers, we understand the challenges faced by the profession, so all our resources and initiatives have been designed with three main goals in mind:

  • To save teachers time and reduce workload
  • To spark learners’ passion and enthusiasm for STEM subjects
  • To convey important messages about food, farming, and nutrition through a cross‑curricular, project‑based approach

Browse our site to find high‑quality primary STEM teaching resources and projects that are closely linked to the National Curriculum.

Science Farm LIVE!

Science Farm LIVE!

Join us on the 13th and 14th March 2024 to celebrate both British Science Week AND National Careers Week with three interactive, live‑streamed work experience sessions!

In keeping with this year’s British Science Week theme, ‘Time’, we are inviting you to step into the boots of a farmer and a farm vet to discover how they spend their days, explore key STEM topics in a real‑life context and gain first-hand experience of the world of work.
