The final deadline in Headteacher Update's environmental design challenge for key stage 2 has been extended until August 7 to allow pupils to work up their entries during the summer holidays.

The competition is to imagine and design the Outdoor Learning Centre of the Future with the winning entries to be turned into fully rendered architectural designs.

The key stage 2, 3 and 4 competition is being offered as a free activity for UK students during the coronavirus lockdown – and it can now be used during any summer holiday learning provision too.

It has been launched by TG Escapes – providers of bespoke eco-buildings for education and experts in the field of building design – in partnership with SecEd and Headteacher Update.

Students are being encouraged to consider a range of issues in their designs, such as technological innovation, effective learning spaces, environmental factors, good use of outdoor space, and issues relating to climate change, such as light and energy-saving and sustainable living. Each design must include an eco-building and an outdoor space.
