Knowsley Safari is using advanced technology to reach out to pupils across the United Kingdom during the Covid-19 pandemic. The UK's first-ever Live Stream Safari School will help pupils to continue to learn about nature and wildlife without leaving the comforts and safety of their own classroom. The service offers a real-time, interactive experience where learners can 'visit' and learn more about Safari online.
Knowsley Safari will broadcast from its school building while instantaneously cutting to any number of other locations on the 550-acre site using multi-location technology. It will also show pre-recorded content that can't be captured live such as new arrivals and veterinary procedures. Schools are advised to pick Safari School sessions in advance according to their interests and curriculum needs.
The service will allow pupils to see all the animals up close and ask live questions during the sessions, which will be hosted by animal experts on site.
Nikki Mallott, head of learning and discovery at Knowsley Safari, said: "While we're still very much open to schools that would like to visit the safari, we also recognise that the 2020 to 2021 school year will be different for many pupils.
"With our Live Stream Safari School we can continue to add to the learning experience, but in a way that is convenient, flexible and inclusive to schools not only in the North West but around the UK."
