Our data: A unique teaching resource
ECN's long-term environmental data are a valuable teaching resource, potentially providing students with actual environmental data for use in science, geography and maths.

ECN undergraduate placements
ECN partner UKCEH has, until recently, offered undergraduate placements for one academic year at two of its ECN sites, Moor House-Upper Teesdale (labs and offices at Lancaster) and Wytham (labs and offices at Wallingford, near Oxford). Regrettably this initiative is currently suspended. We offered one student placement at each site. During these placements, each student was trained in and undertook environmental monitoring at the ECN sites, including associated laboratory and computer work. Students were expected to undertake a short project of interest to themselves and relevant to ECN.

Talks and activities
Although we do not have a formal programme of events and activities, some staff connected with ECN are willing to give talks to groups of children and adults. Some ECN partners also run open days and similar events. To find out more, please contact the ECN Science Liaison Officer, Andrew Sier, at the ECN Central Coordination Unit.
