Feedback from Schools
The children learned three or four birds they'll be able to identify now and they will definitely continue with an interest in birds. The team got them involved really quickly, and gave us great material for incorporating into maths, geography and science. The children loved taking the birdsong they'd recorded outside and putting it into Raven, Audacity and Thumbjam. It was really enjoyable and interesting.

"The children greatly enjoyed it, and are proud of the results of the work. Many were pleased to share the video with their families via the school website.
I feel that your work really inspired the children, especially in the area of music.
Thank you again for all you have done for our school. We would love to work with you again some time."
