What we offer on a school trip
Commando Joe's: bespoke workshops including topics such as survival skills in the arctic, mountaineering at Mount Everest and The World's Greatest living explorer: Ranulph Fiennes
Snowbotics: Mixing snow with science this year, we've launched our new computer science workshops in partnership with Computing at School (a new DofE funded scheme to provide leadership and strategic guidance for staff involved in computing education in Schools). Exercises include programming Minecraft in Python, Learning programming with Raspberry Pi and using human programming to learn set instructions
Discovery Boxes: “Polar Regions” or “Forces in Action” Discovery boxes are self-guided resources to use on the snow to further explore National Curriculum topics. They are full of tasks and challenges to complete on the snow on the day and back in the classroom to carry on your learning experience beyond your time at Chill Factore. They are designed to make learning fun, interactive and memorable.
Lessons and Course Programmes: This year we have launched a primary and pre-school lesson programme where our aim is to make snow sports fun and accessible to all children. We offer all day beginner lessons as well as 3-10 week courses
Snow Park and Mini Moose Land: Our snow park is a thrilling real snow wonderland with a variety of great rides to get the adrenalin going.
